The Austrian mobile phone provider A1 has got an interesting showroom located on a main shopping street in Vienna. Built on 700mÂ² it features a very modern interior design and futuristic computer interfaces to provide the guest with multimedia information. After all those flashy, trendy and shiny presentations visitors can go upstairs to relax at the bar.
The building is split into entry hall with terminals, (good) cocktails on the 1st floor and a shop in the cellar. What makes the shop stand out is that you get a virtual shopping cart (zombie-handy) on which you save your buyings, then move on to the cashier to checkout. So you don’t actually have to carry around real boxes.
After one year of existence the company now re-evaluated the concept and will change the location of the areas. The shop moves to the first floor, the bar will be located in the cellar with a new club concept.
