Boutique Wall Made Up of 25000 Brown Paper Bags: OWEN Store in New York
Have a look at these creative honeycomb patterns displayed by the OWEN Store in New York City! Designed by studio Tacklebox, the interior of this clothes store stays true to the industrial character of the building and adds a little extra. What goes with bricks and dark wood floors? How about thousands of brown paper bags? “Responding to the inherent nature of the industrial space, approximately 25,000 brown paper bags surface the continuous wall and ceiling plane. Arching overhead, the rows of stacked bags form a textured partition. Enveloping the space, the installation intends to revitalize the recently lost pastime of in-store shopping, creating a warm atmosphere for shoppers.” We find this idea creative and not to mention, highly affordable. Moreover, the design of the store maintains industrial details such as blackened steel hang-bars used as clothes racks and an exposed brick wall, contributing to a memorable shopping atmosphere.
