Glore Store by Markmus and Neoos Design

Garments hang from the recycled parts of four bicycles inside a sustainable clothing shop in Stuttgart.

German designers Markmus and Neoos Design dismantled the bicycles to construct both stationary and rotating display rails at the store for retailer Glore.

Unused wheels and frames are attached to walls and other furniture around the shop for decoration.

Lampshades are made from recycled cardboard boxes, while storage crates provide drawers.

Other shops on Dezeen that use recycled materials include a kiosk made from over 1000 copies of the New York Times and a shop filled with steel shelves that would normally be used in plumbing, both of which were for skincare brand Aesop - see all the shops here.

Here are some more details from Markmus:


Concept

Glore Store, the first sustainable clothes store in Germany, is committed to help small sustainable brands from all over the globe. From this point, we wanted to make a link with the most sustainable way of transport: bicycles.

Following this eco-philosophy, we also decided to reuse some material and collected old bicycles in local shops (they gently offered them for free), fruit boxes for other pieces of furniture, and recycled cardboard for the lighting.

All the elements in the store are related to bicycles.

  • The jeans area is showed in a 3 turning wheels structure at the entrance.
  • The main storage volume at the entrance is based on the image of asian bikers carrying tons of boxes fastened with a rope.
  • The fitting rooms have been created by a tube of fabric hanging from wheels attached to the ceiling.
  • The main hanging space is a 10 meters bicycle divided in 2... and so on...

The biggest challenge was to build up the lighting. In total 120 cardboard boxes were set in different levels (so we could have a playful and "cubes" sensation from the ceiling). We reused the old grid structure and held the boxes with small pins (nails) by ourselves.

The whole project was designed together with Udo Kloos (Neoos Design in Nürnberg), the designer who already designed the Glore stores in Nürnberg and Munich.

    Don't like the wheels… other than the first images they are primarily for decoration that i find unnecessary. I like the use of recycled boxes to create lampshades tho. :)

    I think some unnecessary elements still have commericial value. Especially, the wheels are for decoration, make the completing concept. ^^
