The design team of COS stores approached us a last year about a new concept they were working on. Like other clients we work with, such as Starbucks and H&M, the design team is rethinking the way they design, build and maintain their stores. Since launching in 2007, COS has opened stores worldwide in carefully considered locations, applying an architectural design concept that preserves buildings’ original features whilst creating a modern, welcoming space.
Because of the large number of stores COS opens across the world, the impact of the design team can be significant. For this project, which is located in Luxembourg, they approached us with the idea to use the Mushroom SLICED for both the entrance as well as the fitting rooms. We produced both full WasteBasedBricks® Mushroom, as well as brick slips and corner elements to enable them to realise their design. 1620 KG of waste was upcycled in this project.
