Students Sabrina Meyer and Max Wittkopp from the TFH architecture school in Berlin have designed an imaginary flagship shoe shop called Guerilla Boxing.
The concept is for modular box-like stores fitted with drawers to diplay and cover the shoes as required.
Here's some text from the students:
Guerilla Boxing is a design proposal for an invented flagship shoe store either in Berlin or for worldwide use.
Sabrina and Max suggest flexible modular boxes similar to an urban block grid as the shoes sold in their store are also for urban people. These boxes are composed of drawers which hide and at the same time literally uncover the shoes.
Through manipulating their surfaces within a rough concrete-like case the guerilla boxes play with the perception of volume, body, surface and skin - just the same as a shoe does with a foot.
