camper shoe testing facility by note design studio

‘camper shoe testing facility’ by note design studio



for the establishment of a camper store in malmö, swedish note design studio created a space that conveys the wayward energy in many of the brand’s shoes, but still an environment where the products remain in focus. the floor, walls and ceiling have been painted in a neutral gray, making the counter stand out in distinctive ‘camper-red’. the back of the store is an open compact archive with room for 2000 shoe-boxes, whose fronts are clad in mirrors to shield the storage, but also evokes a playful interaction since these mirrors are constantly moving when shoes are brought out for customers to try.


the mobility of the archive has also influenced the other objects grouped together in the center of the room. various furniture pieces in perforated metal and painted in pale pastels give a light and soft appearance, and have handles and wheels so they can be easily moved around the room as needed. together, the various objects present a calm, inviting whole that can be easily altered by manual power.
