Cardboard Pop-Up for Deskontalia
The interior of this pop-up shop in San Sebastian, Spain for Deskontalia appears to consist of nothing but stacked cardboard boxes. For Vaumm architects, the challenge in this shop – which is actually for picking up deliveries, and has no products for sale – was to fill the space in a visually interesting way. Playing on the purpose of the room, they created a system of shelving and desks that only look like they’re made of cardboard. The modular boxes are stacked so they can be moved around individually to create new configurations.
