Product Design Shop Cairopolitan Explores Ancient Egypt in Gizapolitan

Product design shop and art gallery Cairopolitan is reimagining ancient Egyptian monuments through their new concept, ‘Gizapolitan’.

Known for its playful exploration of urban symbols, and its documentations and revival of mundane objects rooted in Egyptian culture, Cairpolitan is taking their design philosophy further and back into ancient Egyptian heritage.

Gizapolitan will see the product design shop add its signature experimental twist into Egyptian history. Gizapolitan’s first product will use rare images of the Great Sphinx of Giza, flashing back to when the monument was nearly entirely covered in sand. Their later work is planned to take a similar approach, echoing iconic moments in Egyptology through a contemporary lens.
