VIRTUAL INTERIOR CONCEPT
GERMAN VERSION HERE
Late 2020 we were asked to create an interior and lighting concept for a boutique and to make it virtually accessible. On a comparatively compact floor space of around 150 square meters, we wanted to create a design that conveys size and modernity without appearing superimposed or staged.
Also, the concept should be scalable: It should work in larger, but also smaller environments in the future. We therefore decided on a modular, expandable, custom-made shelving system. The optically floating elements of the system are reminiscent of picture frames.
LIGHT AND SHADOWS
To visually brighten the deep, rear windowless room, floor-to-ceiling niches were let into the walls, the rear side of which was fitted with LED panels. These illuminate the room with indirect, daylight-like light (around 6,000K), which creates a striking contrast to the warm white light (3,000K) of the track spotlights.
The middle ceiling was suspended in a T-shape, which cites the basic shape of a catwalk. The flanking ceilings were also suspended and backlit with daylight-like light, which gives them an optical lightness and transforms the actual ceiling above into a light flooded sky. Here, too, the contrast to the warm white tones of the other lighting elements is prominently visible.
The whole concept is part of a higher-level project for the presentation and planning of lighting systems and concepts, which will be presented in detail on our website at a later date.
