Inspired by a field of pastel coloured pixels, the entire convention centre has been lined in high quality European acoustic fabric, to create a fresh and lively atmosphere.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A fresh and energetic convention centre designed to seat 150 people, can be accessed from the welcoming reception for seminars and high resolution screening using the full width LED display screen.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This same colour pattern is utilised for the tiered auditorium seating. Moveable, flexible and stackable chairs are located to the front of the tired seating to provide additional seating if necessary.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in May 2015 and finished in November 2016 in Hong Kong.
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
High performance acoustic panels, wrapped with luxurious fabrics by Kvadrat, were custom made to line the interior of the convention centre, with different hues of blue creating dynamic patterns.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
This creates an aesthetic environment with excellent acoustic properties, promoting both productivity and wellbeing. The walls are washed with a soft light, emphasizing the textural quality of the fabric.

The project explores a new method of creating hospitality values in a corporate organization, one that is not corporate, formal and strict, but on the contrary to create a friendly, welcoming aesthetic using high quality, luxurious materials. Lighting and acoustic elements were the main driving force of the design process, translated into a coherent palette of acoustic fabrics that are artificially lit to create a skylight effect.
The challenge is to create a clear sense of direction and hierarchy of presenter and audience relationship, without creating a formal and strict atmosphere. The creative solution is a gridded arrangement of seats and wall panels that creates a sense of order, but allowing a random colour pattern to inject playfulness. The stage area has a clear geometry in a darker colour, in sharp contrast with the audience space.
