As a privately-owned Swedish optics company, Smarteyes is guided by a simple principle: to provide their consumer with high-quality, fashionable eyeglasses at affordable prices. This principle has served as a foundation from which Smarteyes has been able to creatively challenge the industry’s status quo in order to deliver on their promise.
As the principle Establishment Management agency for Smarteyes, re-create was responsible for design and implementation of the retail concept for all of their 50 stores across Sweden, including the brand’s retail expansion to Germany. Additionally, we were responsible for creating furniture and retail solutions that not only enhanced the shopping experience for the buyer, but also made the experience more efficient for the sales associates.

Vagbond - Shoemaker was founded in the late 60’s and originally only produced men’s shoes. So much has happened since. In the 80’s Vagabond’s young entrepreneurs-to-be fell in love with the brand and were entrusted with its transformation.

In 1993 Vagabond moves back to Varberg, Sweden, to set up a full workshop for prototypes, most likely one of its kind in Nothern Europe.
Re-Create has worked with Vagabond since 2011 as their preferred partner for retail design and layout, including concept development and 3D visualization. Together, we have collaborated on the evolution of their retail concept, the result of which can be seen applied in their stores across the globe today.
