K–Space, Hoxton, London, 2008

K-Swiss is a global sportswear brand renowned for its footwear, that also actively supports a range of cultural events including live music and private exhibitions. The project can transform at a moment’s notice, from retail space, displaying both new and classic K-Swiss products to an open, unbranded space for music, film or events.

Ten library archive units are adapted to combine display and storage. The units slide on rails to reveal or conceal products, or to adapt to temporary exhibits. The perforated polished stainless steel cladding shifts ambiguously between reflection, transparency and opacity.
