Fold for fun Office by Michael Liu

Home > Winners > #28172


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Fold for fun

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Office

INSPIRATION:
The design of this office flat is based on the belief of involving architectural concept into interior design, aiming at fully utilizing the original space while fulfilling the client’s request of innovation. The designer especially adopts the folding concept and distorts the ordinary space by some simple cuts and folds, bringing out some incredible bending lines. At the same time, to reinforce the effect, the designer also utilizes the idea of reflection to elongate the distorted lines, creating a wonderful and exceptional visual image.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The main requests put forward by the client are making good use of all the space and being creative and pioneering in the design. Based on the client’s brief, the designer comes up with the idea of adopting the folding concept to distort a normal space, and utilizing the reflecting concept to lengthen the distorted image. In light of this, the strategy of making full use of three-dimensional skills in the design is confirmed.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Adhering to the selected 3-D designing strategy, the designer deliberately chooses the middle wall as the main focus which makes the whole design cohere. Masterly application of the folding method creates unique twisted lines, forming a 3-D image out of the ordinary. All the surrounding design follows and matches well with this middle focus, generating a sense of harmony on the whole. At the same time, the design still presents some attractive layering in the midst of the unity, bringing forth an outstanding effect.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
the project finished in April 2011 in Hong Kong

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
After confirming the designing strategies, the designer prepares the floor plan and creates a cardboard model to demonstrate the concept of folding and twisting so that the client can grasp the final outcome more comprehensively. After that, a 3-D diagram based on the model is produced which clearly and concretely shows the related designing notion.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
This office flat, with an area of 1,200 sq. ft., can be divided into three major areas: working zone, meeting room and multi-functional resting area.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The design of this office flat is based on the belief of involving architectural concept into interior design, aiming at fully utilizing the original space while fulfilling the client’s request of innovation. The designer especially adopts the folding concept and distorts the ordinary space by some simple cuts and folds, bringing out some incredible bending lines. At the same time, to reinforce the effect, the designer also utilizes the idea of reflection to elongate the distorted lines, creating a wonderful and exceptional visual image.

CHALLENGE:
The reasoning behind this designing notion is based on the characteristics of bended lines. Bended lines are 3-dimentiional, which are very different from 2-dimentional ones. Viewing from a different angle, bended lines look entirely different. In light of this, when a distorted wall is reflected from another angle, and the reflected image is viewed together with the original image, a unique and amazing picture will be formed. The resulted image will be like a stretched and twisted wall, generating an unusual effect and add to the workplace much originality and fun.
