The architectural idea surfaced when thinking about bookstore associations – no doubt it is press, books and everything that has to do with paper.
Origami is a Japanese paper folding art. The architectural expression of the stand is based on origami folding, which reminds us of the famous 1000 crane story. It was believed that a person’s, who folded 1000 cranes out of paper, wish will come true. After all, the essence of gifts is to fulfill bigger and smaller dreams of our loved ones. We strongly believe that this poetic undercurrent will help attract the target audience – educated, intelligent, but also sensitive and pensive women.
Materials used in the design – frosted glass, plexiglas, wood particle board furniture, wear-resistant synthetic fiber carpeting.
We invite you to carry the message that in this cozy, but also stylish and modern space customers can find not only material objects, but also the joy that we want to give a loved one by fulfilling his dreams.
The project maintains the request to exhibit goods in the open. Zoning of the goods (navigation) is proposed. The opportunity of furniture mobility is retained. For safety reasons, at the end of trading hours of the island, it is planned to close the shelves and install protective strips along the perimeter of the island (according to the internal procedures of the shopping center).
PROJECT PROPOSALS OF LITHUANIAN PAVILION IN WORLD EXHIBITION “EXPO 2015”.
Conceptual project of Lithuanian pavilion at the world exhibition “Expo 2015” – a unified content, external and internal space suggestive form’s organizational entirety, presented in the original sketches’ (textual and visual projects) forms.
The main concept of the project is an idea of a garden. From small modular components a larger structure is “grown”, where the pavillion exposition spaces and other essential facilities are installed.
Fabric of metal rods creates impression of lightness, integrity, freedom, transparency, despite those qualities it is dense and sturdy.
Lithuania is a small dynamic country, but open to the world, that has old traditions and unique values. The disappearing pavilion contour does not define clear boundaries, openwork structure allows for exterior space, flora, natural lighting and innovation and tradition to come inside as well as memorable moments which represent the country and anyone who wishes to know Lithuania up close.
The “Garden” is easily assembled and is part of the exhibition. Each element or their junction can become an object, an interactive installation or change its use; this is how the modular system is given meaning, the “garden” becomes a smart object, and open spaces – an integral part of the exhibition. The project is aimed to present the old Lithuanian traditions in modern, contemporary way, create a link between history and recent achievements.
