Double Win, featuring creative special coffee, chose the location of the pop-up store in the landmark Tianmuli Park, Hangzhou. The neighbors next to it are familiar brands: Heytea, Seesaw, %Arabica, and so on. When the brand invited us, they didn’t ask too much, only hoping that the space design of this pop-up store could be combined with the urban characteristics of Hangzhou.

The pop-up store appears as a luminous gift box in the lush Tianmuli Park
Tianmuli is located on the edge of the West Lake Scenic Area, and you can see the lush green mountains when you look up. As Hangzhouer working in Shanghai, we are very familiar with this city: walking from the branches and alleys of the old city, will help us get into the mountains and rivers easily; nature and the city are fully connected, which is an unique experience in other cities. Because of the existence of the West Lake landscape, Hangzhou, which was originally noisy and busy, has become more poetic and calm, and the landscape has affected the temperament of the entire city.

When conceiving how to express the city of Hangzhou, we chose to find inspiration from ancient poems. Those words are very graphic: ” Luk Yeung Galleria, the shadow of the white sand embankment. “, ” The West Lake looks like the fair lady at her best. Whether she is richly adorned or plainly dressed. ” , ” The brimming waves delight the eye on sunny days. “… In the writings of ancient literati, Lin’an City is different due to the West Lake landscape. In the end, we chose two poems by Wanli Yang as the story clues for this Double Win pop-up store:
“Take a nap in a small canoe under the leaves and flowers of lotus,
surrounded by the fragrance of the smoke and water of West Lake.”
by (Song) Wanli Yang
In the description of the poet, during a nap, in a dream, a small boat rippling in the waters of the West Lake, with lotus leaves protruding high above the water; the poet lies on the boat, squinting, watching the sky from the gap between flowers and leaves Through. In the drenched water vapor, the smell of earth, water plants, lotus, and water vapor is permeated, and the gurgling sound of a small boat pushing aside the surface of the water is in his ears.

In this description, a few figures have constructed the scene from multiple perspectives of vision, hearing, and taste. With a great sense of picture, the ancient poems has something in common with the scene experience that the pop-up shop wants to express.

In this design, we tried to use modern design language to reconstruct the artistic conception of the poet’s writing in the space, so as to realize the resonance of emotion and experience.
