description
Situated in the bottom floor of Illa Fleming complex, this showroom had to be not only a commercial facility but an emblem for its company. This meant that it was important to preserve the strength and quality of the inner space independently from the products showed.
Transparency from the street is a first requirement for modern companies, not only for showing the products, but for the “nothing to hide” take home message. Besides, once again, the clear geometry and use of colour help to keep the space order when it is full of products, while avoiding the “empty” look when there are no products showed.
The result is a high quality space that could even be used as a public attention office hardly without modifications.
