For the design of the Arnsdorf 72-hour pop-up store, Australian architectural studio Edwards Moore used 154 pairs of pantyhose tights. Stretched over the walls and ceilings, the tights created a really cool setting for Arnsdorf's sample sale.

Inspired by rocky caves and crystal forms, this design really transformed the space of the pop-up store and turned the everyday piece of clothing into a sculptural object. This successful concept no doubt helped to boost sales as well.

Implications - Many people enjoy pop-up stores because they are unique and don't last for long periods of time, creating a sense of urgency. When something has a limited time period, people will flock to it because they don't want to miss out. This also goes for limited-edition items.
