Lobby Feature Wall and Reception Desks


We are currently fabricating a series of architectural features for a lobby renovation in Manhattan.  The project includes 3 facetted Corian reception desks and a series of folded aluminum feature panels.  Each 11′ tall frame will be clad in perforated aluminum composite material and appear to fold out from the wall.  The 27 panels, each with unique geometry, will line a 150′ long lobby corridor adjacent to the reception desks.

Y-3 Projection Wall

 

On September 9th 2012, Y-3 celebrated their 10th Anniversary with their 2013 S/S Fashion Show. As a backdrop to the celebration, Y-3 commissioned artist Dev Harlan to create 200 foot long 3D projection wall with an array of 660 skewed pyramids. For the fabrication and installation of the wall, Dev turned to Situ Fabrication.

The pyramids were CNC cut out of light-weight Ultraboard and then folded and seamed as sets of three. Interlocking tabs were integrated to quickly attach the pyramids to a plywood substructure. Dev Harlan then mapped projections to the 3D geometry and brought the wall to life.

More photos of the project are available here.

Carpet Art Auction at Interface

 

Yesterday evening we joined members of the design community to support DIFFA. Interior Design hosted the Carpet Art auction as part of Idea Lab 2012 to benefit the Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids. Situ Studio was among a group of artists and designers asked to come up with innovative pieces using only carpet tiles and materials.

Above an image of Situ’s Modular Acoustical Wall contribution. The modules are constructed out of individual carpet tiles that are scored, folded and assembled into 3-dimensional units that can be tiled and arranged in multiple configurations.

The event was sponsored by Interface and held at their Midtown-Manhattan showroom. At the left of the photo a piece by Elizabeth Von Lehe/ICrave Design.

Hava Nagila Installation

 

We are in the process of installing sound domes for the “Hava Nagila: A Song for the People” exhibition at the Museum of Jewish Heritage. The domes will be installed with motion sensors that activate to 5 play different landmark versions of the song. The show opens September 13th at the museum in lower Manhattan.

Idea Lab 2012 to Benefit DIFFA

 

As we prepare for the upcoming Idea Lab 2012 event, we begin to assemble our FLOR carpet modules and to assess the variable frame and structure of the paneling system.

Carpet tile assembly

We worked with FLOR carpet tiles to design and fabricate a modular acoustic wall system, which will be presented September 6th at Interface in New York. An auction of all Idea Lab artworks will benefit DIFFA (Design Industry Foundation Fighting AIDS).
