Eaton Centre Information Kiosk

The Eaton Centre is the most frequented retail crossroads of downtown Montreal.  The centre benefits from a great advantage as the central location connecting the many neighboring commercial buildings and the McGill Metro station through a network of underground passages. Given this, the challenge was to create a guiding element that could serve as a beacon for its many access points and the 5 levels of the commercial centre.

The proposed solution was to establish a signage column around which would be found a reception desk module where clerks could satisfy the requests for information from consumers and tourists visiting Montreal.

The circular shape of this counter was meant to have several functions such as:  offer an attractive welcome area, harmoniously integrate pigeonholes for the centre’s leaflets and display the ads for artistic and touristic activities taking place around town.
