supernova studio: kokoo boutique

british group supernova studio is a creative practice that does not subscribe to the conventional description of a design studio but serves as a platform for dialogues between architecture and urban culture. their recently finished in store display for the kokoo boutique in cyprus is surrealism made in plastic form. the space being small in width but with tall ceilings, the priority was to display products and achieve a cohesive environment and experience.

view of whole environment in use.

in store environment of a clothing and accessory shop in nicosia, cyprus.

umbrella handles stuck into the wall serve as shelving and hangers

elongated teardrop shapes frame a suspended golden egg with protruding human legs creating a focal point in the environment. the stylized natural elements, that serve the role of a chandelier, reflect and abstract images of the people and objects in the space. this constantly changing interaction between the surroundings and the visitors helps to tie the ceiling area into the inhabitable area, unifying the store in one experience.

the chicken form (based on the name and graphical identity of the shop) and the umbrellas provide a versatile method of displaying different types of goods. again inviting interaction from the shopper in an easy and interesting manner.

the sectioned shelves not only create the chicken form, but also serve as varying size displays.

the form of a handle invites the viewer to reach out and pick up the items they hold.
