The new Circus shop in the vibrant Brixton Village is designed by Studio DB and completely made from recycled cardboard, glue and string!
To complete the look I made the shop proprietor Binki Taylor a market apron skirt with a digital print of the cardboard on to wear in the shop. The Cardboard skirt is printed on organic cotton and using a bespoke printing service to create a unique garment for Circus.
The shop interior inspired by waste cardboard boxes in the market bundled up ready for recycling is a resourceful way to use recycled board that makes up shelving units, lights and even a cardboard chair!
Now open The Circus store sells a variety of old and new, up-cycled and locally crafted goods. Surrounded by great eating places, vintage cloths stores and individual shops, studios, and regular street entertainment is a creative reuse of urban space.
