Project Work Status: Completed Projects

Project Completed: 2005

The black color is meant to neutralize the material emphasizing the abstraction of a dynamic form, free from any identity given by a material or familiar elements such as walls and ceilings.

This non contextual form was placed in such a manner, so as to appear elevated from the ground, further adding to its sense of an alien object. Given the fact that this space was to be designed to display crystals, we perceived the 'Black Pod' as a mysterious space akin to a cave, within which, all objects and furniture were defined by one continuous material and tone against which the crystal would show.

Due to the limited space of the pod, we defined the spaces within by allowing the ceiling to fold down towards the floor and then turn back up while never touching the floor, similarly the floor would rise up one meter to allow for displays hidden behind walls of each segment that oscillated in and out of the main space.
