DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Wayfinding System Grafenegg

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Wayfinding System

INSPIRATION:
The high polished stainless steel surfaces of the products mirror parts of the landscape, trees, the sky and the architecture and thereby the elements disappear virtually. Defined anthracite areas are used to display information through text and graphics which are engraved and cut out. The typography and arrows are illuminated. At night information is floating in the park. An orientation system which harmonically integrates old and new and which is not competing with the architecture.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
We conceived an intangible orientation system which takes a back seat to promote the information to be given to the visitors. An ensemble of products has been designed. Minimalist sculptures for the gardens, markings and signs of various sizes and forms for the buildings.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
As the system itself is rather reluctant in appearance it perfectly leads the visitors of the palace and the music festivals taking place there.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Grafenegg, Austria

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Graphics and Visual Communication Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The design team consisting of architects and designers created a wayfinding systems without a typical signage approach. The system reflects the buildings, nature and skies during daylight and during nights the typography is backlit and almost seem to float. The information is floating in the park. Using polished stainless steel makes possible that the elements seem to integrate completely into nature.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Various dimensions according to the neccessities on-site

TAGS:
reduced to the max, minimal, timeless, exclusive, affecting

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
not applicable

CHALLENGE:
The hardest part of the project after having decided on the design and materials was to find qualified partners for the chosen materials and for the realisation and implementation.
