No Shop by Thomas Matthews

No Shop by Thomas Matthews


In 1997, sustainability design agency Thomas Matthews launched this temporary “No Shop” installation, devised to draw media attention to the launch of International No Shop day in the UK. Despite the launch being over 10 years ago [and only open for three days!] it is still shown around the world as an illustration of the movement against over consumption. The contemporary design treatment and concept will, I believe, allow these images to forever be revisited.
