FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPT OF THE PROJECT:
Within a completely empty room with double height, we designed a space for the exhibition of furniture for the residential room, we built a mezzanine leaving some distance between centers at full height to link, spatially, both levels.
It was important for the type of items to present something in which the space was the most neutral as possible so it would highlight the foregoing, so we decided to make the surround of dark gray stone and oak wood, leaving all the other materials such as ceiling and dividing walls painted in gray Oxford.
The Mezzanine metal structures are exposed to sight and to top the space we designed a ladder made of a ¼ \” gauge steel plate stamped hung with round steel to show its maximum lightness.
The lighting was designed considering to highlight the furniture and leave everything else no less relevant in the background, the fixtures have the flexibility to move and some of them sliding on rails as appropriate and to allow movement in different kind and options of furnishing by station.
Different brands presented in this room have certain constraints for the design of the exhibition of their goods so we had to adapt some requirements and fuse them with each other.
Within the space, designers’ offices of the trademarks and drawing workshop as well as the room project presentations were projected.
An automation system for lighting, audio and video generally allowing suits to lighting based on time of day was used.The local has several terraces bordering lakes and wooded area which was tapped to display all the outdoor furniture all accommodations being outdoors on the terraces.
