BMW Brand Stores are an element of the BMW Group’s Future Retail programme, which aims to enhance the customer experience and set new retail standards in the automotive industry and beyond. It is part of the BMW Group’s response to changing customer needs and expectations.

“Brands have to be experienced,” says Dr. Steven Althaus, head of Brand Management BMW and Marketing Services BMW Group. “Conventional showrooms are giving way to platforms which encourage communication and enable experience. Our interior concept combines architecture, design and technology to create a new form of brand presence. This fundamental vision of successful modern presentation has now been recognised by the Iconic Awards.”

The approx. 1,500 m2 Brand Store in Brussels refines the existing BMW architectural language to showcase the brand in appropriate style, utilising innovative exhibits and interactive media. The interior of the Brand Store conveys the dynamism and aesthetic appeal of the brand in an authentic manner. The attractive design of the exhibition space invites visitors to linger, while the latest presentation technologies encourage interaction with products and brand. Visitors are able to visualise the configuration of a vehicle on an oversized screen called the Virtual Product Presenter (VPP), for example.

Regularly changing exhibitions with different themes and installations provide insights into the different worlds of the BMW brand. More than 50,000 people have visited the Brand Store in Brussels since it opened in March 2014 with the “BMW i – eMobility” exhibition. The current “M Power & Motorsport” exhibition, which runs until early September 2014, has proved another success.

The interior design concept and initial exhibition for the Brand Store in Brussels was developed in collaboration with becc agency GmbH.

The Iconic Awards 2014 is an international architecture and design competition that recognises visionary architecture, innovative products and sustainable communication from all fields of architecture, the construction and property sectors and the manufacturing industry.
