“Camper Shoe Shop” in Lyon by Studio Makkink & Bey
Dutch designers Studio Makkink & Bey have completed a store for the shoe wear brand Camper in the French city of Lyon.
The red outlined staircase pedestals, stools or seem to go on forever. Bright red lines merge with graphics printed on the wall to give to basic walking movements – forwards, upwards and downwards – a dimension of infinity.
Stairs represent the conjunction of separate places. While performing as a place to meet, sit on or pass through, they expand places and establish rhythm, depth and infinity of spaces. More shoes are displayed on recessed shelving and the highest shelves can be reached using mobile blocks of yet more steps.
Camper often commissions designers to create the interiors for their stores.
