WHY IS THIS SHOP INTERESTING TO VIEW?

When Curro Claret was commissioned by Camper to redo one of their Barcelona shoe stores, he decided to let a group of people in risk of social exclusion have a go at it. The result of this open design project is a very positive one. Together with Arrels Fundació, Curro Claret and the group of ex-homeless people designed and built a new shop interior almost exclusively from recycled materials. The furniture is based on a metal piece called T300 by Claret with which he has been working for a while now. This joint allows you to create tables, shelves and stools from nearly any reclaimed piece of wood. Apart from old furniture found in the streets of Barcelona, the group had discarded materials from Camper to work with: old signboards, shoe laces, and leather offcuts were turned into wall coverings, curtains, lampshades and seats. The result is a colourful and playful, yet slick interior that proves that upcycling can look good and be fully functioning. Through this open design project, a group of people who had been living on the street at some point of their lives managed to learn new skills and experience what it is like to design a commercial interior. Moreover, it provided them with extra income, paid by Camper. The rest of the commission from Camper is used by Arrels Fundació to keep running their workshop which offers constant activities and training for people in risk of social exclusion.
