Camper + Shigeru Ban – House of Shoes


Our friend Halley Tsai checked out Camper’s New “House of Shoes”, designed by Shigeru Ban, which opened in NYC on Tuesday evening in Soho. Shigeru Ban’s signature paper tubes make an appearance in the design, in the form of a gable roof. The tubes are a temporary art installation, but they contribute to the concept of a “House of Shoes”
Using the Camper red and white colors, a design was created which has the floor to shelving at the back wall of the store. The angled fin walls of the shelving units each have a piece of the Camper logo. When viewed from Prince Street on angle the logo is read as a complete word. From the Greene Street view, the letters are broken.
The dimensions of the shelving unit correspond to red stripes on the concrete flooring and to the corrugated red and white ceiling. Furniture in the store is designed by Shigeru and fabricated by Artek.
The original exterior windows and walls between the structural piers were demolished. In place are sliding floor to ceiling glass doors which open the entire facade on Green and Prince Streets in the warmer weather, so that it feels like an open market on its site on the corner.
All photos were taken by Halley Tsai, except where noted otherwise. Thanks, Halley!

I love the angled fin walls that display the Camper logo when viewed at the right perspective, but which are broken up and abstract when viewed from other angles.


The seating area is made up of elements from Shigeru Ban’s 10-Unit-System.



Shigeru Ban and Miguel Fluxá, Camper’s general manager, discussing the collaboration. Shigeru Ban felt that the original building looked lonely, so he added the paper tube gable roof to visually suggest a home
