Bureau A builds a model Soviet city inside L’asticot boutique
“No one is indifferent to their strong expressive forms,” Bureau A’s Joana Croft Dantas told Dezeen.
Swiss childrenswear brand L’asticot has collaborated with architecture firm Bureau A to install a miniature cardboard city at its Geneva store (+ slideshow).
Created to scale, cardboard buildings of Bureau A’s city are housed on a circular structure made of welded steel, which has a clothes rail underneath.
Bureau A was asked by child and baby clothes store L’asticot to create an environment that would reflect the creativity and playfulness of the brand.
The studio responded by crafting an imaginary urban environment that takes cues from the architecture of the Soviet Union – examples of which were documented by photographer Rebecca Litchfield in her Soviet Ghosts series.
