Eigen Huis & Interieur pavilion
i29 interior architects have designed a pavilion for the Dutch magazine Eigen Huis & Interieur at the annual design fair in RAI Amsterdam. With an architectural installation i29 strived to make a spatial experience for the visitors that surprises, an environment to be discovered step by step.
The ‘house’ has been reduced to the essence: open and closed surfaces, walls and volumes, sight lines. Contrast in color and mirroring surfaces play with the perception of space. Mirroring volumes hide display cases which include compressed worlds that refer to living. The ‘emptiness’ of the pavilion and the richly decorated display cases reinforce each other through their contrast. The simplicity of the pavilion makes it a place for contemplation amidst the abundance of products at the fair.
