The space was conceived by designer Pedro Silva through his collaboration with Chilean Brand Nalca Shoes. Based on three axes of interdependent action, Espacio Colaborativo Nalca offers guidelines of production suggested by the space’s three architectural programs. These programs include a commercial platform, creative lab and exhibition gallery.
A large proportion of our own work emerges from our fascination with mathematical logic and geometry, with advances in design technology enabling us to rethink form and space. The fluid surfaces and structures of each project thus generated are defined by scientific innovations. Our design for the Mathematics Gallery realises such an effort.
The organization of the fair asked A&B Project to design a space for hall 6 where visitors are welcomed at Brussels by Night and can enjoy a drink in an atmospheric and cozy place. Inspired by architectural elements, the bar and reception area are constructed with angled wooden slats, creating different shapes of surfaces, yet form an open and dynamic whole. Some surfaces are closed with semi-transparent canvas, creating privacy for the visitors.
100 shades of colors in the form of flower motifs saturate the 6 meter atrium. At the center, visitors can be immersed amongst the 25,200 delicate flowers aligned in three dimensional grids. As well as being suspended from the ceiling, the flowers subtly rotate because of the NSK bearings and the windmills installed at the top and in turn, the installation produces a gradient of gradually changing color.
A 5-m-high wall with cylindrical openings fills the space, inviting people to place their hands inside to discover the hidden tactile mysteries. Subsequently, visitors discover the final room, packed with translucent L-shaped panels that can be moved and reassembled to create smaller spaces or new configurations.
This scaffold is formed by a number of small boxes of 50x50x50 cm, it is a separator but also an empty space available to be filled of objects and productions. This space was thought to establish a diffused and transparent limit, a great vertical showcase that allows to expose memories and what has been done.
Sole DXB, an event showcasing art, culture and street style, was the perfect backdrop for the originals to align their “future” global platform in the Middle East. The campaign, designed as an ode to the resilience of street culture, intersects past, present and future with originals as the apogee of style tribe leaders.
The structure seems to revolve around the centre of the stand. This “hub” becomes the natural location for the reception area and event space. Indeed, characterised by the apparent weightlessness of the large panels that give the stand its free sense of form, this central space feels like a sort of contemporary agora.
Windows in the wing that houses the show feature a geometric pattern that reveals the most prominent aspect of Murcutt’s design: a roof highlighted by a cluster of golden triangular prisms intended to imitate lanterns. Lined with multicoloured glass, the prisms admit gems of light into the mosque, which change with the movement of the sun.
