In Poland, designers of studio smallna, together with Polish artists Joanna Gwóźdź and Daiusz Kwiet, have decked the boutique of fashion brand Risk. Made in Warsaw in such a way that you don’t know which way is up.
Inspired by the fashion brand’s reversible clothing range—which has items that let users wear them inside-out or back-to-front—the layout of the boutique contains ‘gravity-defying’ furniture that makes you feel like doing a headstand.
Its ceiling hangs a full-length grey fabric curtain, as a dressing room—which looks as if it can accessed from either the ceiling or the ground—and sits a couch, table, lamps and shoes.
To further mess with your mind, its walls are painted to look like the sky, and an upside-down balloon ‘grounded’ by a brick hangs from its ceiling.
Definitely not a place The Twits from the Roald Dahl’s children’s story would feel comfortable in, the deceptive reversible room gives its visitors a whimsical yet queasy feel.
