this camper store in central milan is delineated by a series of wooden boards, aligned to a simple 32×32 centimeter grid. designed by kengo kuma and associates, the plywood surfaces also elegantly conceal the integrated lighting system developed in collaboration with mario nanni.

 

a limited palette of materials comprises raw plywood boards for the walls, and acidified limestone for the flooring. the only additional furniture within the shop is three carefully positioned seating pods that provide a comfortable place for customers to try on shoes. throughout the scheme a duality is established between the apparently simple decor and construction methods, and the more sophisticated and complex detailing and execution. see comprehensive drawings for the project here.
