‘I pity the fool forced to buy more products than he wants to,’ said retail design giant Fitch’s Simon Threadkell to BDP’s Stephen Anderson this morning at a retail seminar at New London Architecture. Such was Threadkell’s response to Anderson’s anguished question, ‘Is this whole retail-based consumerist philosophy sustainable, though?’ which he uttered at the end of an hour-long seminar about developments in retail design.
