INTERIOR DESIGN / CUSTOM ROOM
DECCA COMPETITION / REDEFINING THE STANDARD
In many cultures when formally introducing yourself it is understood to be good etiquette to bring a gift.
Etiquette considered. This custom furniture collection and room design has been inspired to celebrate key historical ideals of the Western culture through design. I have chosen to use subtle Eastern Oriental cultural references while adding complimenting gestures through picture art, materials, color and pattern. This hoping to create a connection and familiarity with the products for both Eastern and Western cultures, appealing to both markets.
The room is designed as a fully functional lounge and reception during the day that could transform into an entertainment space in the evening. The aim was to keep this duel concept, a balance between the two cultures throughout the room using the interiors decoration and furniture design
Rather than contain the concept I have chosen to remove limitations and restrictions by taking away both a partitioning wall and ceiling from the original room, to illustrate a sign of encouragement of both openness and growth.
