Designers are translating consumers’ obsession with digital imagery into playful objects in retail. Visuals, materials, and structures reference pixelated images with grids of single-colored squares or shapes that intentionally blur edges in a blocky way, sprinkling a dusting of pixelation throughout the retail scene. Familiar to shoppers whose eyes are often glued to screens, the treatment may be deemed this age’s version of impressionism.
