Designer Gitta Gschwendtner has completed the interior of a shop in east London that features lighting made of plastic milk bottles.
Called Lik+Neon, the shop stocks T shirts, magazines, jewellery and art objects.
Magazines, CDs and records are displayed on a grid of elasticated ropes, while a seemingly-random composition of square pegs supports clothing and jewellery.
Photographs are by Uli Schade.

LIK+ NEON shop design
Design shop Lik+Neon have commissioned the designer Gitta Gschwendtner to redesign their eclectic and vibrant shop in London.
Lik+Neon sell a unique selection of products including T-shirts, art magazine, interior objects, jewellery and art pieces.
The display concept for the varied stock explores a juxaposition of order and randomness, cleverly integrating bungee cord to create tidy grids showcasing the beautiful covers of the magazines, cd’s and records, each one of them practically a piece of art in their own right.
In dynamic contrast, square display pegs jut from the walls in apparently random fashion, creating sculptural protrusion that function as hocks for prints, T-shirts and jewellery.
The pegs create a pixelated effect continued by Gschwendtner’s striking one-off ceiling installation-a lighting system devised from hundreds of plastic milk bottles, creating three glowing abstract clouds illuminating the white interior.
