The design concept takes inspiration from eroded sea shells and primitive stone structures – the arrangement of curving walls and arched thresholds form a carved interior space for the display of products. The prefabricated translucent fibreglass modules provide a sheltered atmosphere through the layering of subtle texture and light. The modular design of the structure was crucial in the shipment process, travelling from the manufacturing workshop in Manchester to Beijing, then on to a series of locations across China for temporary installations through 2018.
