Fashionable São Paulo Furniture Store Shows its Goods in Colorful Stacked Shipping Containers

by , 06/20/11

Located on the last empty lot on ‘furniture row alley’ in the city’s popular Alameda Gabriel Monteiro da Silva neighborhood, the Decameron Design shop required something not just temporary and low-cost, but eye-catching. And the vividly painted, reclaimed containers fit the bill nicely. Six containers in total have been stacked two-high and transformed into a gallery to display the furniture, all while providing an excellent and intimate space for customers to approach the wares. The ends of the structure are capped in glass, which have been secured by the containers’ hinged doors. Using an array of  bright colors, the architects also managed to emphasize the modular appeal of the design.
