The hidden complexity of this unit is in the way it goes together. The order in which the plywood panels slide in together during the assembly is the hidden key to ensuring the unit is locked securely together and a shopper cannot pull any panels out. The horizontal halves fix into the uprights with clever cam-lock Lamello biscuits that lock tight together with an Allen key. This helps keep the modules together and the shelves nice and flat across the span.
During this project we honed our time management and instruction writing skills, as well as our ability to work with different stakeholders on a single project.
So Watt & Koala drank many coffees together and burned through most of our scrap paper. It was an entirely collaborative process between So Watt, Koala and the branding agency employed to style the pop-up space, with many sessions spent on ensuring the piece ticked not only Koala’s needs but also Myer’s.
The national rollout to Myer stores in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Darwin was completed on deadline and assembled with ease by the Koala install team, allowing maximum exposure for the brand during their lease period in the stores.
