NANBOYA / Reuse shop

Discipline: Interior Architecture

Discipline: Interior Architecture

This is a branding project for the reuse shop NANBOYA. With the shop’s unique slogan: “Life wouldn’t be that fun without a ‘reusing’ spirit,” the shop aims to replace a conventional "buy and use" consumption by the new "sell and connect" circle. The interior design is themed on the Japanese word tsumugu, which literally means "to weave." On the walls, blue strips are weaved on punching metals and create a one-stroke sketch-like design that runs throughout the shop. These strips draw pictures of products the shop deals with and express the shop’s sincere attitude on these pre-owned goods.
