Tjep. was responsible for the interior design of the AKO flagship store at Schiphol Airport. For this project we were inspired entirely, and on nothing else but books, from the book displays, to the flying book light fixtures and the checkout counter reminiscent of a stack of books.
Shipping containers aren’t exactly the most aesthetically pleasing architectural building blocks in the world, but in the hands of the right designer, they can become something spectacular. The PUMA container store isn’t just portable and green, it’s quite stunning with its cantilevered deck and interior combination of sleek wood and industrial steel.
