DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Cluster for The ISF Academy

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
A social space for students

INSPIRATION:
The existing portals for lockers, if we take away the functions, can be reinterpreted as portals for departure for imagination (Inspired by the "The Chronicles of Narnia"). They also create smaller spaces within a large space. Thus different curved sofas are combined with the rectangular forms, with the cut away parts stepped into the world of imagination. The sea of lights can be dimmed in various combinations, informally giving students a democratic landscape.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The project encloses and transforms a corridor area into a desirable environment for students to socialize. Different combinations between the curve sofa benches and the existing rectangular portals result a few different settings. 49no. custom-made fibreglass reflector lampshades flies above, pouring in a soothing glow and dividing the uniform cluster area into zones with various happenings. Variations of pattern originated from school name are engraved to the portal wall by CNC milling

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
-

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
It was a fast track project. Construction started on site in June 2014 and lasted for 60 days.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Reflected lighting to create a softer atmosphere was preferred in the design. 49 light reflectors were made by using fibre-glass mould. Testing was done at the studio to achieve best lighting reflection. As for the feature walls, the graphic works were done with CNC milling on MPF panels followed by spray-painted.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
1500 mm x 950 mm x 150 mm fibre glass reflector.

TAGS:
Social, Portals, School, Interior, Lampshades, CNC milling, Artwork

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Studying the behaviour of students during breaks and talking with teachers were important to the design. Also, since the beams are deep and ceiling height is relatively low, choice of lighting and acoustic materials were carefully considered without further lowering the ceiling. Also, to give the space a new identity is important. Thus we worked with Artwow Group who used the Chinese characters of the school and created 5 sets of unique graphics, which were used as the back panels to the new portals. The transformed space was popular among the students.
