Products by young local designers are displayed against the rough ochre walls of this boutique in Katowice, Poland, designed Joanna Wołoszyn and Daria Barnaś (+ slideshow).
"Our point is to show the identity of the region in a new, modern way, based on pure Silesian tradition and proudly taking the best it's got," says Geszeft owner Michał Kubieniec.
The shop is spilt across two rooms and visitors enter into a cafe area where books and other small items are presented on shelves.
Garments and larger merchandise can be browsed in the second adjacent space, reached through gaps in the concrete structure.
The coffee menu is written in chalk on the only black wall in the shop, from which the facetted L-shaped serving counter protrudes.
Other surfaces have been stripped back to show a patchwork of old plasterwork layers and original concrete, then polished to finish them.
Tubular lights high up and black clothing rails lower down are suspended from the ceiling by thin wires.
A wooden shelving unit takes up an entire wall, though a few horizontal elements are missing to provide access to the fitting room behind.
Another Polish fashion boutique we've featured has an upside-down living room on the ceiling.
More projects from Poland include an architecture studio in a disused loft in Poznan and a theatre and library slotted around a nineteenth century horse-riding arena in Kraków.
