This 26 meter concept store was created in Zurich from 17 rusty freight containers. Freitag make bags out of recycled materials, such as used lorry (truck) tarpaulins, car seat belts, bicycle inner tubes etc. and wanted a store that reflected that re-use ethos. Despite being made from such an apparently uninviting material, the inside looks fairly bright due to the good use of glass. The shop is also fairly well insulated to make sure it doesnt get chilly on those Swiss winter days. The place is expected to have a life-span of about 5 years or so. Expect a run-down of their bag products fairly soon.
