Inspired by The British Museum’s, “History of the World in 100 Objects”, we have set out to define the key objects which overtime have had a profound impact on the development of Retail, society.
Arriving at the list of 100 objects has been an enriching experience. Our list has been curated through collaboration and combining wisdoms - the wisdom of crowds and the wisdom of experts. Using social networks around the globe we first asked for objects to be nominated. An advisory board of experts from different disciplines were invited to help shortlist the most defining objects. From there, we illustrated each object, told its story and created an overview infographic of what its retail impact has been.
