Denim R & D in İstanbul, Turkey by Zemberek Design Office

 
October 24th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

The space is designed as an R & D studio within headquarter of a textile company. The design concept was built on the physical relations among the users (R & D personnel), products, accessories, and the materials.

It was observed that actions of sitting, walking, working, evaluating the products by comparisons, performed in ordinary levels and locations, are limiting the function of  R & D.

It was needed to design a space where flexibility of working in motion and accessing the whole volume instead of using a limited area is possible. The concept was based on the suggestion of establishing a platform where it is possible to expand the possibilities instead of using a desk that limits the size of the usuable space and accessibility.

We aimed to free the actions of sitting, working while in motion, leaning, meeting, easily accessing the hangers, and observing the products (denims, fabrics, accessories, etc.) from different distances and lots of them together, instead of defining the locations of the actions. It was intended to increase and diversify the possibilities of the way of  interactions of the users with each other and the space.

In this connection, the elevations between 0 and 80 cm were separated from each other with different area intensities, and turned into platforms for the mentioned activities without boundaries. The curvilinear form was supported the sustainability of fluent and flexible movement. We made it easier to focus on products by selection of small palette of materials. We also provided different variations and levels of artificial and natural lighting.
