Dan Friedman for WilliWear

Dan Friedman was a close friend of WilliWear and a frequent collaborator. His design for the Paris store, his first commercial interior, expressed his versatility as a graphic designer, product designer, and artist. Biomorphic furniture forms filled the colorful space, and a black-and-white desk and kiosk show how Friedman applied the scheme of the WilliWear logo to an immersive environment.
