Every weekend an eclectic japanese man transforms a portion of his tiny home, designed by japanese ondesign & Partners Architects Office, into an exclusive temporary Scandinavian shop called FIKA. “The sundries are precious collections rather than just a commercial product. The customer who comes here comes to meet the products rather than just choosing a product.” say architects. The things that are used on a daily basis and the products are all displayed on a shelving unit that separates the home from the shop. When a teacup just washed comes on the shelf it becomes a marketable product.
By displaying commercial products and products that the owner uses in a daily life together on the shelf, the shop and the house links to each other and gives an expectation to connect with the neighborhood through life.
