A textured wall of 22,000 wooden sticks has been installed in this Stuttgart boutique by Swiss architecture firm ROK (+ slideshow).
Extending in various directions and to different lengths, the beech wood sticks create the illusion of a single flowing form.
CNC-drilled holes define the direction of each stick.
A range of menswear is hung on metal rails against the backdrop of the textured wall, which references moving fabric. "The installation refers to the flowing forms and delicate texture of textiles and cloth," said the architects.
A full-height mirror lit from behind hangs in the centre of the feature wall.
Display stands and shelving are all made from the same beech wood as the sticks.
Other shop interiors featured on Dezeen include a shoe store furnished with wooden pallets, ropes and tyres and Zaha Hadid's Milanese shoe boutique for footwear designer Stuart Weitzman.
