This cutting edge boutique is a blend of industrial elements and nature. The floor plan is arranged to mimic a speedometer. Shelving and displays radiate outward from the cashwrap. Cards and gifts are located in the central displays. The side displays contain more special items that are sold year round. The materials used in Cardboard Robot are a mix of hard surfaces & soft greenery. Concrete, brushed stainless, brick & cork are mixed together to create an industrial environment. Behind the cash wrap a “living wall” is used to improve indoor air quality, provides a focal point, & improves acoustics. The idea of Cardboard Robot is to create a space that seems to be growing backwards, away from industrialism & back into nature. It is a space that showcases its merchandise while illustrating how nature can overtake industrialism.
