Tea store in São Paulo pops out of the wall

Pop up stores? Cute, but so last decade. Say hello to The Gourmet Tea, a pop out tea store in São Paulo. Neatly hidden behind what looks like a neon art deco wall when it’s closed, the shop is actually an oversized plywood box that opens up for business by popping out from the wall panels, thanks to some very clever design by Brazilian architect Alan Chu. A hinged flap flips to show the shop sign; the counter is wheeled out, and a door opens to reveal cupboards and shelves of tea merchandise. Wow.
