for this collaborative project with adidas, URBANTAINER and street culture specialist kasina have selected korea’s most premium products and created a community space for sneaker nerds where they can experience the deep histories and designs of the brand. in other words, its mission is to provide a comfortable atmosphere for street culture enthusiasts and an influence for trend-oriented customers at the same time. materials like ascon for flooring and custom-made zinc furniture evoke the street scene, providing a distinctive sense of being in this particular urban landscape — even if visitors spend their time indoors.
