Summer 2017 is virtually here (‘virtually’ being most apt as I look out the window today), the schools are on the brink of breaking up & the family-friendly visitor attractions of the UK are bracing themselves for the start of their busiest & most lucrative weeks of the year.

Ambitious Development

None more so than Folly Farm Adventure Park & Zoo in Pembrokeshire who have the added bonus of an entirely new, built-from-scratch, gift shop & entrance building to help them cope with the demands of the impending high season.

Visitor numbers are reported to be rising at an annual rate of 30% from a current half a million-plus visitors a year, so Icon & Co were immensely proud to be asked by the owners to help in the realisation of what was an ambitious yet essential development.

Themed Display Furniture

The west Wales adventure park has four main themed zones: ‘Zoo’, ‘Barn’, ‘Fairground’ & ‘Play’, & a key part of the design brief for the shop interior was to have these themes represented in its fixings & display furniture, with plenty of ‘wow’ factor to boot.

Hence free-standing display gondolas in the form of safari jeeps, tractors & fairground trucks, & themed shelving reflecting the farm & rolling-hill branding of this well established rural business. 

A stunning centre-piece, provided by one of Folly Farm’s very own, full size, vintage merry-go-rounds, gives some idea of the size of the building & the scale of this shop-fit project, & Icon & Co have created an undulating display shelving unit designed to maximise the merchandising potential of this beautiful piece of fun fair history.

Shopfitting Experience & A Large CNC Machine

Large format CNC cutting machinery, coupled with their design studio capabilities, as well as their experience of fitting out some of the world’s leading toy stores & retail businesses, made Icon & Co the perfect partners for the manufacturing of the eclectic & eye catching array of bespoke display furniture & props required for this major project. 

Photos of this & many other Icon & Co retail display projects can be viewed in our portfolio pages here, & please feel free to contact us with any enquiries, however large or small.
