I’ve recently completed a project for the Design Museum Shop, creating this truly “pop-up” shop out of Dufaytlite’s Ultraboard material. The Museum Shop wanted a structure they could easily pack up, manoeuvre about, stock-up and start selling and this little “shed” contains all the bits they need to take their shop on the road.
The Shed-like design came about when they shared with me a shed graphic they’re using to promote some home-grown product and I couldn’t resist the temptation to play with the shed walls and roof, and the shack-style flappy windows.
Look out for the #ShopShed during London Design Festival, when it will be popping-up in the following places:
Saturday 17 – Sunday 18 September – Open House at Commonwealth Institute, South Kensington
Thursday 22 September – Tom Dixon’s Dock
Friday 23 September – Designer’s Block at Farmiloe Building (plus workshop with Will Shannon); then dashing back to the museum for Design Overtime until 10pm
Saturday 24 September – Tent at Old Truman Brewery (with Will Shannon)
Sunday 25 September – Design Museum shed will be displayed in Riverside Hall atrium.
