Organic Food Bazaar by Mas Studio Limited, Hong Kong
Run by Health Aims, the organic supermarket offers organic produce, cosmetics and daily essentials. Green workshops such as tie-dye and DIY recycled paper are held regularly on the same floor.

The supermarket’s interior design puts forward the idea of environmental protection through various aspects. The shelves and walls are decorated with compacted recycled cardboards and spare planks, while some small shelves are presented on old bicycles. The animal prints on the wall, also made from recycled cardboards, aim to raise the awareness about endangered animals around the world.
The entire floor of the supermarket is presented by six large images. The application of two shades of cement on the floor conveys a story about environmental protection, while the ceiling’s minimal design demonstrates how less can be more. The ceiling of the workshop area is decorated with the “flower of life,” in symmetry with the “tree of life” located at the entrance area. Made with the long-forgotten material zinc, the “flower of life” shimmers under the reflection of special lighting; it is a reminiscence of the past, put in place to remind us how important it is to narrow the gap, created by technology, among people.
