Barefoot Studios

Quarta & Armando‘s design for Shanghai portrait studio Barefoot divides the space into distinct working and reception areas with a parete attrezzata (equipped wall unit).

This wall simultaneously facilitates all of the studio’s functions, housing within its girth such diverse elements as storage space, changing rooms, pantry, reception and office.

IDEAT Booth

For Ideat’s booth at the Salone del Mobile Milano Shanghai Alberto Caiola Studio created a dynamic and interactive space with a minimal palette of two colours.

The predominant colour is a deep blue, visually striking but also allowing for a green screen effect to virtually place visitors in the concurrent exhibition in Milan via a photo stage at one end. In addition to this virtual portal to Milan, the booth housed a cafe area, magazine display and stepped seating. Scrolling LED displays run along the booth adding movement, and the magazine logo in a bold and contrasting green, applied in orthogonal projection over the stepped seating and central area of the booth, adds further dynamism, its elements shifting in the view of passers-by.
