SHOE STORES! Camper store by Studio Makkink & Bey, Lyon

June 23rd, 2012 by retail design blog

When Dutch designers Rianne Makkink and Jurgen Bey were commissioned by Camper to design a footwear store in Lyon, France, they appropriately looked to the basic movements of walking for inspiration. ‘Walking, as the most primary way of moving through space, has shaped the interior design with its lines of movement and the physical structures that form the landscapes in which we walk,’ Bey says.

The shop is filled with the illusion of walkable spaces, as graphic line drawings of staircases, stepladders and ladders cover the walls and floors. Amongst these images there are also real stairs and stools amongst the store – outlined with red edges – which are used to display shoes or offer shoppers a place to sit and try products.

‘To achieve modularity, we’ve designed furniture in various sizes and made the entire structure stand on its own: it’s a box that slots inside the existing store space,’ Makkink explains. The ‘prêt-à-porter’ designs can be moved throughout the store, adding to the shop’s mixed sense of perspective.
