A souvenir shop that pedals down the street, popping up to sell adorable accessories where ever it goes.
Designer Yaroslav Misonzhnikov debuted a bike-operated store that roams around the city of Saint Petersburg, selling small items like city maps, souvenirs, and mobile device cases to passersby. The two-wheeled mobile store, Immeno-Lavka, took inspiration from classic trishaws – bikes specially designed for transport of goods – and was Misonzhnikov’s attempt to bring back the environmentally friendly concept.
Easy to set up and without the extra bulk, Imenno-Lavka is hand-made of natural wood and features the store logo in black ink on the side. The front display of the store is segmented into several compartments that differ in size, while the second part of the store rests on the back wheel of the bike. This space-saver store is a great way reduce the need for extra space in European cities, or any urban area for that matter.
Tourists around Saint Petersburg should definitely keep an eye out for this innovative pop-up store – it’s not everyday you see a traveling souvenir shop.
