Endless Space for Casa Foa in Santiago
Interior Installation for Casa Foa, Chile – design by 57STUDIO
31 Dec 2016
Location: Santiago, Chile
Endless Space is an interior design at an interior design fair called “Casa FOA” that had its first run in Chile, coming from Argentina, in October 2016. The place selected for this fair was an old two storey house that was to be recycled by all of the architects, designers and decorators briefed to create one small space within the larger space.
The proposal by 57STUDIO seeked to provoke something special in the visitor, somehow a little breathing space from the eclectic spaces around the fair. That´s why 57STUDIO decided to make a white space whitout limits, where the walls would turn into ceilings in an imperceptible way, and the light would smoothly slide over its different planes.
The architects wanted to accentuate the idea of infinity with the incorporation of a horizontal pit that goes all around the space, and by having a mirror in its bottom, produces a repetition effect that contributes to the sensation of depth seeked.
57STUDIO wanted to provoke something beyond the products that are going to be exhibited, which in fact were very few as we seek to highlight them much better through the white backdrop and lighting.
The construction of this place is carried out by coating the original space with a new layer of gypsum board organized by several special pieces, made to order by the sponsoring company.
The illumination was thought in three tempos: indirect through the horizontal niche; fixed and punctual falling from the sky over the desk; and a horizontal line of light from the lamp built into the desk leg, centerpiece of the space and product specially designed for this occasion by our company.
Throughout the light niche, a mix of classic and contemporary pieces of design very carefully selected and placed as in the museums, to concentrate their eyes on them and to be able to analyze them from all their faces thanks to the reflection of the mirror.
