SHOE STORES! Hacke und Spitze store by Holger Jahns, Berlin

May 30th, 2013 by retail design blog

The floor plan of the Kreuzberg mezzanine resembles a ballroom. Only here, it’s the furniture that does the waltzing. Resembling minimalist creatures storage cases on tripod stands present dancing shoes. Likewise, all other container components of the interior design (such as the stools to try on shoes or the light boxes for the exterior displays) revert to the same basic model of an aluminium container box.

Standardized boxes of this kind are mostly ordered by hospitals and similar customers. Here, they meet with an entirely new task. Pipes used for the tripod are joined by massive cast aluminium fittings otherwise typically used for handrails in trams or buses.

For this project, we developed a coloured, yet translucent nano coating for all aluminium components. As the nano film is very thin both anisotropic shine of the polished metal surfaces as as well as the characteristic cool touch of metal are preserved. The ‘dancers’ were posed with digital software using inverse kinematics.
