The first papelote stationary shop opened up in June 2010 in Prague, Czech Republic. This is a new concept store of hand made stationary, which is directly connected with the workshop, where all the designs and products are made. In spring 2010 Kateřina Šachová, Denisa Havrdová and Filip Šach, the founders of papelote asked us to help them to define an original interior for selling their paper recycling oriented design.
The material is the main subject for all papelote products. All the recycled papers, cartoons or pen-cases made out of felt originate basically from natural materials. Also the principle motif of the interior design derives from papelote´s recycling philosophy. We decided to slightly uncover the history of old house by exposing colourful layers of scraped plaster.
We have also discovered beautiful oak parquet under the carpet and polished them. The theme of stationery subconsciously reminds us the school times, so we decided to display the goods as if being on noticeboard. We used the metal clips (aprox 180pcs) to fasten the products on the “noticeboard” wall. It is an playful and interactive way how to introduce new designs or small exhibition of the workshop. The opposite wall with blakboard brings the interior a second changeable layer – it serves well for small paper workshops for children and even adults.
