Client Biopark is bio grocery network putting emphasis on their philosophy of well being and sustainability. They came to us searching for new visual for their growing brand, something which would pop in between new ecological stores that open every month. Taking inspiration from their name and logo which was already in use, we proposed the concept of walk-in – between trees “.
Simplified plywood portals are a reminiscence of tree boles, in scale you could find in old parks or forests. We used them to frame tall racks, as well as to emphasize cash desk with deli. By rotating them around the corner we create a feeling of a massive tree. Hanging bulb lights and moss enhance reminiscence of forest feast.
Alongside accent on selling products, there is an emphasis on natural materials as well.
Plywood portals and massive wood racks are placed on the neutral background – white tall racks and grey floor linoleum.
