Papercut is Right




While I don't think the execution is perfect, Yeshop Papercut succeeds as part retail space and part sculpture. I personally prefer the top two photos, and don't necessarily think that the boolean boxes shown in the lower photo are ideally placed for aesthetic balance... however, the idea is quite nice. Using very affordable materials (cardboard and osb) as well as a laser cutter (I hope!), the joint effort by dARCH Studio and Yiorgos Eleftheriades succeeds in creating the kind of shop you'd like to visit to check out cutting edge fashion.
