A tiny, remote control shop selling real boy push pins. The second in a series of creative pop-up shops held on Cat Street, in Harajuku, Tokyo. (the first was in a tree!)
With only 100 of the 1000 limited edition packs of two Real Boy push pins remaining, a special pop-up shop was created to celebrate reaching pack number 900. To build upon their uniqueness, and small size, I wanted to build a tiny shop that held and displayed only a single pack of pins. The shop was also mobile, and movable via remote control, further adding to the designs sense of surprise and playfulness, as well as insuring the minimal design would still be noticed.
