This project is about a small shop in shop.The low budget story continues with cheap raw materials to dominate the space.Hydraulic pipes and cheap wood are used to create display wall units and tables.Because of the  small corner space of the available shop the basic layout idea was to create a low height display in front, so the whole space can be visible.This was acheived with three sets of nesting tables placed at the front perimeter.The nesting table idea serves the purpose for the maximum display at minimum height.The tables are made of raw sheets of steel just curved with the minimum effort and cost supporting the low budget concept.
