Bikes of Monochrome

Bikes  of Monochrome Nidolab

Description from the architects: The idea was to develop a retail store, on a small budget, that could easily be assembled in a short period of time.
The product itself provided the main colors and shapes, so we decided to create a very neutral space that would not compete with it. Wooden boxes made for exporting goods were treated back to its natural wood colors and highlighted the structures by painting them in white. They were displayed in the center of the shop creating seats and exhibition platforms.



A very long panel of tulip wood was placed on one of the sidewalls creating a canvas to display bike parts and accesories. Special metal hooks were design to hold the different kind of rims hanging form the ceiling.
At the back of the store is located the workshop, where bikes are assembled and fixed. It was painted in a bright yellow color so that it would creat a focal point for the visitors.


For the entrance we decided to place a low table and a panel with all the bike parts so that costumers could create their own custom made model.
The window shop was arranged with the wooden boxes creating a geometric shape structure that would hold the bikes for display.
