Gudjon Thor Erlendsson of AUDB and Andreas Krause of Krause Architects have just completed two new pop-up stores that celebrate upcycling in London. The project was commissioned by high-end fashion label Bottletop, a social enterprise that designs accessories from upcycled metal tabs and uses the proceeds to support young people in Africa, South America, and the UK who suffer from health issues. Inspired by the brand’s crocheted metal tab designs, the architects created a beautiful artwork woven from 3,000 soda tabs that’s suspended from the ceiling in an undulating mass. The furnishings are made from recycled and modular materials. One shop is located at the high-end retail Regents Street while the other is located on the other side of London at Redchurch Street in the East End.
