Papabubble Caramels Artesans started in Barcelona in 2004, and has since launched all over the world. The candies are all hand made, and in showing the process of making candy to the customer, Papabubble entertain kids and adults alike. The shops' design typically resembles a laboratory, displaying the finely presented handmade look of these experimental candies.
In the Yokohama store, the laboratory look was allied to Seki and Hayon's strong design values in the decorative details of the interior. The shop is located in an office area in Yokohama, in the ground floor of a forty-year-old building. The building's age determined extensive renovation in the interior. Emphasizing the new aspects of this design, Seki created a strong correlation between the inside and outside.
The bottles are an icon of Papabubble stores, but in the Yokohama store, they are one-off originals made by Venetian glassmaker Massimo Lunardon, coloured crystal glasses which highlight the differences in design from other Papabubble branches in the world.
