If there is one thing that is guaranteed to get us interested here at Dotmaison, it is an original design idea using a mixture of materials for a high quality concept. Oh, and sweets! We love sweets! Which is why we are extremely intrigued by the Papabubble designer sweet shop located in a Tokyo department store…
Created by Japanese architects Schemata Architects, the store makes wonderful use of concrete – which was cast in a fabric brand to give the counter an appearance similar to a boiled sweet – and makes a spectacle of the sweet making process for potential customers. All the work involved is visible to visitors; from melting sugar, cutting, creating patterns and wrapping.
The concrete wraps itself around the kiosk, creating a secure bond that even a sweet tooth couldn’t melt!
For more on the work of Schemata Architects check out their site.
Sweet lovers would do well to check out this previous post about another curious sweet shop, this time in Australia…
