Uniqlo Cubes

America meets Uniqlo

Two tiny pop-up store cubes with a deep attention to detail are designed to introduce New York City to the Japanese clothing brand Uniqlo. Each cube is made from an integrated shelving structure and is compact enough to ship on a flatbed truck. Clad in translucent plastic, they beckon evening visitors to investigate by revealing the colorful glow of the clothing inside. The cubes were first installed in NYC to coincide with the grand opening of the High Line Roller Skating Rink, which Hollwich Kushner designed with Diller Scofidio + Renfro, and then continued to travel around the world.
