“Light plays an important role when we can sense and feel it. Through light we can experience architecture and the space’s environment. Light can touch our emotions and therefore becomes an important factor for the welfare and health of the user. Light creates realities and influences the way we see things.” OSRAM LIGHT CONSULTING.

Inspired in this text, the design of the showroom lets light be the star of each scene that can occur inside or outside the space. A diagonal white wall reflects the color of the light by fusing architecture with light in a same sensation and involving the user as well. A mobile front laminated glass set on the back lets the space be divided in two: exhibition area and offices, the orange façade gives the institutional character to the project. A white box formed by nine shutters lowers the ceiling and catches the light that goes through the floor of the box creating the board room. Three luminous glass boxes complete the space and give lightness to the furniture.
