Boasting a museum-like feel, the flagship is different from traditional retail spaces and intended to to inspire people to go out and enjoy the wild through experiential installations. lauckgroup was tasked with executing a design that would immerse visitors in the outdoors and capture the brand’s core tenants.

Inside, countless eye-catching showpieces, such as a 750-pound stuffed bear, a grill once owned by the founder of Franklin Barbecue, a Texas flag made from more than 11,000 beer bottle caps, several decorative sharks suspended from the ceiling, showcase the brand as a go-to for outdoor enthusiasts. lauckgroup strategically designed each fixture to represent the idea of craft and tell the specific product’s story by employing raw materials, exposed fastening, acrylics, etc.
