The London-based 6a Architects created this variable interior for the K-Swiss shop in London. Inspired by library archive storage systems the units which are made of perforated polished stainless steel cladding are specifically designed to combine display and storage and slide on tracks to reveal or conceal products.
“The brief was to produce a retail space that located new and classic K-Swiss products alongside other culturally related objects (CD’s, books…) representing similar brand values. The key function of the space was its ability to transform at a moment’s notice from a working retail space into an open, unbranded space for music or art events.”
