Behind Closed Doors - Clerkenwell Design Week 

 

In collaboration with Hakwood, Shape created a bespoke compact installation ' Behind Closed Doors' for the 2018 Clerkenwell Design Week. 

Design approach:

'Behind Closed Doors’ is a 3.2 m high installation designed and fabricated by Shape London, offering a miniature street-scape that draws inspiration from the Dutch home of Hakwood as well as Shapes’ South East London Design Studio.

Shape London designed a pop up street scene of tall town houses located at the entrance to Spa Fields, in close proximity to the Exmouth Market area. The decorative houses are clad with Hakwood Wall Tiles where each house will have its own unique pattern sharing the same colour pallet. Each house includes a small door revealing a series of miniature interiors designed by various architects from Shape’s Dragon Fly Place Collective demonstrating that any interior is an open door for creative inspiration. The hidden rooms are placed at various heights to invite visitors to interact with the installation and ‘discover’ all the rooms. Each of these miniature scenes contain Hakwood flooring and have been decorated by different architecture practice from the South East London community to create a true mix of design styles.
