In the window display over the inside of the shopping center, we created Christmas tree balls with colors that fits the dark and leather style of NATURAL GIFT design, a hand made using fabric threats painted and rapped over a metallic structure attached to the ceiling using the same threads covered with cotton as if the snow is falling.
Mrs. Pound is divided into two main spaces with yin and yang aesthetics: the lower dining area is all about feminine glamour through the use pink leather banquettes, mirrored marquee lights, pink patterned chinese tile and delicate gold accents, while the upper dining area features an opposite counterpoint through the use of diagonal concrete panels, green floor tiles, green bar stools and striking neon artwork.
We then surround our tree with the spaces we would spend most of our time in, namely the conference room and our working area. A floor-to-ceiling double-glazing enclosure allows our tree to be omnipresent. Additionally, we devised a way to physically ‘bring’ the tree inside by capturing its shadows.
The hall is dominated by the big red glass wall which becomes the symbolic limit between the common, relational and working areas. The operative and directional offices are conceived to achieve a high quality of the working spaces in terms of comfort, brightness, furniture ergonomic and functional organization of the spaces and services.
The carpet was purposely designed using deep, dramatic colors like purple, red and black, creating a feeling of warmth and intimacy. The wallpaper, predominantly red with a black flock, adds a complimentary touch. Storeage coupled the graffiti design with a black and white Memphis-influenced pattern that brings a rock and roll edge.
