Remember that say “one man’s junk is another man’s treasure?”. This is something that we find in almost all languages. Well, in this case, we could say that one man’s junk is Glose Store’s treasure. Glore is a Stuttgart-based retail design that uses recycled bicycles and boxes. It was founded by Markmus and Kloos from Neoos.
It’s also a retailer that stands for sustainable design and global responsibility. In order to promote their company, Aretio of Markmus and Kloos from Neoos decided to visit the streets of Stuttgart. They’ve used bicycles. Of course, not any kind of bicycles. They’ve transformed four used bicycles into amusing display methods that show garments spinning from old wheels or hanging from distorted frames.
It was an ingenious idea that attracts people’s attention in a nice way and that also makes them curious. The team also has another inspiring idea. They’ve decided to collect boxes from the community and to use them to create a lighting element with illuminating cubes hanging from what one used to be a mundane ceiling.
For this they had to use qw0 cardboard boxes. It was definitely a challenge but it was worth the trouble. The team also collected fruit boxes and old wood to make additional furniture pieces for their shop. With them it’s all about sustainability.
