Second Skin for The Lake and Stars by Barker Freeman Design Office designed using Rhino, V-Ray, and Grasshopper

Friday, August 12th, 2011

Article source: Barker Freeman Design Office

SECOND SKIN is an installation proposal designed to complement the aesthetic and image of the clothing line of the Lake and Stars.  The initial concept was to develop a space that recalled the way in which the designers see lingerie as something that can be playfully exposed and integrated into everyday wear.  The architects developed surfaces of abstracted “skins” that alternately reveal and conceal spaces with varying levels of privacy.  Fittingly, teh inspiration for the structure comes from the pissoirs that line the banks of canals in Amsterdam.

Dining Womb by John Lum Architecture Inc.

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Article source: John Lum Architecture Inc.

The Dining Womb was created for the 2010 DIFFA (Design Industry Foundation Fighting Aids) fundraiser whose simple brief was to create tables for dining, which were viewed and used by patrons during the event.   Typically dominated by interior designers who create decorative and theatrical table tops, we wanted to get beyond the superfluous, and focus on the critical elements necessary for a great dining experience; namely intimacy, intrigue and sensuality.  As architects, we wanted to create something that was rigorous and functional, with a strong conceptual, structured form.  Our brief required us to seat twenty individuals.


  • Architect: John Lum Architecture Inc.
  • Name of Project: Dining Womb
  • Project Designer/Manager: Bret Walters
  • Lighting Advisor: Scott Dumas, David Scott Lighting
  • Software used: Rhino 5.0, 64-bit for the 3D work and the Maxwell Render plug-in for rendering.  The workflow includes photoshop, Illustrator, and Vectorworks as well.

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

Article source: Barker Freeman Design Office

BLUE ROOM is an installation proposal that translates and complement the brand’s juxtaposition of soft silhouette and architectural lines in their work into the scale of the retail environment.  We began with an idea about the insertion of a translucent lining that would contrast with the rectilinear envelope of the existing space and act as an atmospheric veil to separate and define areas for the display of merchandise.
