Located in Poznan Plaza shopping mall in the city of Poznan, Poland, the store features display cabinets made from chunky chipboard panels , held together with brightly colored ratchet straps. Cardboard tubes are put together to create a supporting structure for the displays made from raw OSB wood panels. After experimenting with the material, architects have concluded that the most stable construction would look like a caterpillar tread; the tank shape was chosen as the most suitable and secure way of piecing the cardboard together.
Three major considerations directed the design process for the new store: the structure was to be built from renewable materials , the building costs reduced to minimal and, above all, the design was supposed to help increase global brand awareness. The Tube Tank pop-up store is the second collaboration between Mode:lina Architekci and TRIWA: the first store also featured cardboard as the main material, with dismantlable boxes later used to transport watches to the next pop-up store.
