Scheme 01 Cabinet of Curiosities
This scheme takes a whimsical yet highly utilitarian approach. The starting point is a block- camouflaged, static, inanimate. As one engages it, it opens up and reveals hidden nooks and secret enclosures. Cladded in a turqoise coloured glazed ceramic tile in reference to laboratory benches, the contraption allows the viewer / client a journey of discovery and adventure- turning the retail experience into one that is immersive and inquisitive.
Schme 02 Hyperefficiency
Starting with a 1.5m3 (1.0m x 1.5m x 1.0m) block of timber, elements and conponentry are extracted (each facilitating a specific modality of display, engagement and utility)- maximizing the material. Fundamentality the idea returns to sustainability and efficiency- where wastage is minimized, each and every part of the ‘original material’ is used.
