polish architecture firm, mode:lina architekci has reused pallets from a previous project to fit out the temporary store for ‘clae footwear’ in poznań’s galeria malta shopping mall. the industrial material clads the space in a continuous pattern, resembling typical floor boards or wall paneling at a portion of the cost. turned on end, the palettes form centralized display areas, and when stacked, they serve as benches for customers trying on merchandise. unfinished wooden ladders and partially whitewashed elements add to the refined warehouse feel. maintaining the simplicity of the design, an array of wall-mounted shoes appears to float around the perimeter and are supported by long screws extending from the vertical platforms. boxes placed strategically around the shop add texture, and put stock close at hand for a convenient shopping experience. in contrast to the rough interior, the storefront is enclosed in smooth glass and high definition advertising panels. reflecting the tectonic change and lack of supporting material for cantilevered components, cardboard boxes of various dimensions become staggered stages.
