OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Bean Buro proposed an open and interactive space, with a 9m long LED screen displaying dynamic abstract animations to create a museum like experience, referencing artistic conversions of industrial spaces.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The project explores a new method of creating hospitality values in a corporate organisation welcoming space, one that is not corporate, formal and strict, but on the contrary to create an emotional space that engages visitors and users through art. Various artistic approaches have been investigated, such as a large scale video installation that could transform the lighting quality of the space, as well as original designer furniture that celebrates the world of design.

CHALLENGE:
The space was designed to be flexible, with a boardroom that can be opened up for events, or closed for private meetings, moveable furniture to easily change the configuration of the space.

CLIENT/STUDIO/BRAND DETAILS
NAME:
Bean Buro

PROFILE:
The studio is an emerging architecture and interiors practice from London and Paris, led by Lorène Faure and Kenny Kinugasa-Tsui, with a team of international designers to provide architecture, interior, installation, furniture, product and masterplanning design services. The Hong Kong studio was opened in 2013. The diversity of the practice with its collaborators reinforces a core vision for the practice: to respond to the exchanges of global cultural narratives, incorporating overlapping design disciplines specializing in the social, economical and political production of urban spaces. We believe architecture is an emotional, spatial experience produced by both the user and the author. Our design methodologies stem from the observation, speculation and analysis of contextual narratives. These narratives, or ‘stories’, generate dynamic exchanges of historical, environmental, cultural and social factors, resulting in highly inventive interventions while preserving plenty of intellectual wit. COLLABean, as an integrated part of Bean Buro, is a trans-disciplinary platform for collaborations between practice, research and academia. COLLABean can provide design research services for business organisations, and wherever appropriate, to involve specialists’ input from a network of highly reputable designers, academicians and researchers in the design field. The practice has since produced a string of successful interior architecture projects for luxury residential clients as well as workplace designs for reputable companies such as Cheil, Leo Burnett, Warner Music, and has been awarded Silver Winner in the Asia Pacific Interior Design Award 2015, Runner Up in Architizer A+ Awards 2015, Gold, Silver & Bronze Winner in the A’ Design Awards, and Finalist Winner of the 13th Modern Decoration International Media Award. The studio has a rigorous methodology of exploring spatial narratives through conceptual drawings and models that explore the humanistic aspects of design, and has been featured on Archdaily, Elle Decor and Wallpaper* Magazine.
