Discipline: Interior Architecture

RACE is designed to encourage manufacturers to “future-proof” their businesses by adopting robotics technology. We were inspired by the concept of modularity in robots and influenced by the aesthetics of precision and dynamism. A major design challenge was to meet the diverse functional brief, yet be wholly contemporary and transportable for future relocation. We introduced a 'second skin' by deconstructing the ceiling and wall planes into an array of facets, each comprised of stacked layers of hand-cut aluminum hollow tubing. Rotating the direction of the tubes with every facet creates a bold multi-directional effect.
