Here is a zip file with information on designers, more images from the book, additional context, etc. Even has this strange 'body horror/Existenz' looking font, and a great Metalheart-styled promo image for font called 'Detox'.

Reminds me, found an image of 'Spot Bagel Bakery' in Seattle (1992 maybe) -- They went for a vague 'Jetsons' theme, so they used modified lava lamps for the main light fixtures.

Finally, Milano Montenapoleone, Italy (2003) This one leans more heavily into the 'experimental 70s ultramod pleasure palace' vibe; with super shaggy carpet covering most surfaces, flower supergraphics, and that wall sculpture resembling a beaded curtain.

Miss Sixty clothing stores by Studio63 Architecture+Design (2002-2003) -- These designs also show the influence of the Gen-X Soft Club aesthetic, and the revival of 1970s Ultramodernism. 1. Tokyo, Japan (2003)

Hmm, I wouldn't call it tacky in the typical sense of how that word is used; since the concept of intentionally creating contrast with an existing traditional context by introducing a more minimalist, abstract form was well-established by that point in European architecture.

"Among the most striking features is the glazed panel which sits in front of the original facade. Conceived as a 'shield', this element makes a clear distinction between what is new and what is old." Scanned from 'Future Systems' monograph books by Marcus Fields & Phaidon

'Wild at Heart' flower shop - Notting Hill, London - designed by Future Systems Architecture (1997) (1/2) "The idea was to create a couture environment for flowers. Water containers are concealed in spray-painted MDF structures leaving nothing to distract from the blooms."
