Ministry - 2016
Project: Retail Design Manufacturer: Pike Powder Coating

Ministry of Supply is a function forward menswear brand based in Boston, born from MIT graduates.

Growing quickly from Boston to San Francisco, Ministry needed their SF store designed, manufactured and delivered in 23 days.

Racks, tables, window displays, an interactive demo and a spacesuit were all shipped flat for onsite assembly.

The highlights of this project were custom cast aluminum joints featuring the MOS logo drilled and tapped for easy setup and breakdown.

From napkin sketch to reality, the layered acrylic provides a 'Heads-up' style GUI IRL. The annotations highlight the brand's unique offerings.

Interactive

The fabric developed by MOS is both waterproof and breathable.

The display traps a piece of this fabric between two flanged pipes and pushes air up through the fabric, creating bubbles in the water above.

Ministry is still cranking out solid pieces each season.

They wanted outstanding results and were thrilled at what was delivered.
