Kazimir Space Model by 2-B-2 Architecture
Space as a provocation to our habits of vision is the topic which interests designer Andrey Bondarenko from 2-B-2 Architects and the painter Esther Stocker. He created a unique project for an exhibition space in the Ukraine, she – interior and exterior installations in Vienna. Design as an optical experiment? Why not! What exactly provokes and inspires it, you can read about on the following pages…
2-В-2 Architecture studio from the Ukraine has succeeded to attract the attention of one of the most influential global editions for design with its conceptual interior design Kazimir Space Model. The young artists remind us that design is not only about colours and shapes but a way of thinking as well, and they venture to create visual provocations.
The interior, which will sen/e as a commercial and exhibition space, is designed by many geometrical elements – shelves and frames of steel, wood and glass, with purely visual function. The inspiration to organize the space particularly in this way comes from a series of oil paintings Supermatism by Kazimir Malevich – Ukrainian artist, one of the founders of the geometric abstract art. „We created a linear, transparent, easy interior in which the goods play the leading role.
Each of planes is a separate graphic composition. When the visitor moves in space the relative positioning of elements of a composition varies with each step and it is difficult to distinguish a plane from volume,” explains the designer Andrey Bondarenko. The abstract picture is further intensified by the shades of the frames, glass surfaces and geometrical figures, created by the light coming through the openings in the exterior wall.
