Pop up shops required

Saw this piece in Design Week recently. Ethical shoe retailer Terra Plana is seeking designers to help create a series of pop-up shops. Starting this year, Terra Plana hopes to open pop-up shops across the world, beginning in London.

The company says it is seeking ‘creative ideas and approaches, centred around sustainable, mobile, short-term shop design’, according to a statement.

It adds that it is seeking designers who ‘are able to produce imaginative retail solutions to a limited budget’.
Terra Plana opened its latest permanent store at Westfield last autumn, co-designed by furniture and product design group Hotcakes and Terra Plana’s head shoe designer Asher Clark.

It reminds me of the Japanese stores that spring up every now and again in Tokyo.
