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.

Urban Prisms

Lukstudio created a playful pavilion of colour and light as a pop-up store for eye wear brand Mujosh.

Taking cues from design elements of the brand’s range of sunglasses the pavilion combined retail space with an interactive ‘experience chamber’ inviting guests to play with shifting patterns of coloured light and shadow.

The basic rectilinear structure of white scaffolding supports a flat roof sheltering the interior and is intersected by three translucent prisms. Lit from within, these glow at night drawing in passersby.
