Eki finalised

0 Comment
A few of the finalised photos of Eki.

Eki is the official distributor for high end hair products, mainly Shiseido Professional.
The limited space has to multi-task between showroom, office space, product dispatch centre - basically the "pretty side" and the "paddling side" of a business.

We have created a pure space for the products, which also multi-tasks; display shelves can be placed anywhere within the white cube with the system we custom designed for the project, 2 projection screens can be used for different purposes simultaneously or independently... and as everything can be tucked away, the space itself can be used to house functions such as product launch and award presentation.

The "pretty side" of business is what "sells"; but it does not exist independent of the "paddling side" which holds everything together.  In Eki the "paddling side" of business surrounds the "pretty side", holding it together literally.

... more photos to come ...

Photographing Takara

0 Comment
We photographed Takara at last.

The small Japanese Restaurant at Sydney's Chinatown is a project of experiments.  We tested new ways to consider structure, new materials, new spatial layering...
A lot of newness led to a space very much out of the ordinary.

Looking forward to the finished photos.
