Unami in Oakland, California

Umami-mart_5

When opening a brick and mortar shop I would use these images for my inspiration board …

They are from pop-up shop Umami Mart. Normally a Japanese food blog and webshop importing speciality and luxurious Japanese kitchen  ware. They were part of Popuphood, an initiative in Oakland (outside San Francisco), giving stores six months free rent in dead areas of town to invoke new life and growth and hopefully allow the new shop owners to sign a long term store lease after the test period.

The shop was designed by Arhoj.
