Innovative pop-up stores have been, well, popping up a lot over the last few years, and South Korea-based architecture and design company Urbantainer has created a unique temporary store called Naver App Square.

Naver App Square, created for the South Korean search engine Naver, is actually a shipping container that has been converted into a giant cardboard box. According to PSFK, the designers at Urbantainer combined a metal shipping container with sheets of cardboard so that the end result looks just like a big, open cardboard package. Its exterior even mimics the look of a parcel and features a scannable QR code as well.

Inside, the Naver App Square contains all-cardboard furniture and accents, including tables, chairs, speakers and wine bottles. Stats for Cardboard Box Pop-Up Shops Trending: Older & Buzzing
