Decameron, São Paulo, Brazil

two-storey furniture store made from six shipping containers

Located on a rented site at the furniture commercial alley in São Paulo, Decameron is a two-story furniture store made from six shipping containers and designed by Brazilian architects Marcio Kogan and Mariana Simas from Studio mk27. The containers are vividly painted with bright colors and form tunnels where products are displayed side-by-side. The ample span of the ground floor, necessary to show pieces of furniture in relation to each other, is constructed with a metallic structure and it is closed by double-height alveolar polycarbonate metal casements. There is a patio filled with trees and a pebbled-ground at the back of the lot.
