The design curatorship of the space was entrusted to the expertise of AGENCE BLANCHET D’ISTRIA who found in WOOD—SKIN the best choice to achieve this gently S-shaped wall, which serves as a partition element between the terrace and the reception area, creating depth and movement through its 3-dimensional forms.
Using a light wooden structure that defines the sinuous shape of the base wall as a support, we covered the area by hanging WOOD—SKIN from the plasterboard ceiling just like a curtain. This was made possible by the lightness of the material and its ability to function almost like a textile. The final effect is an extremely rigid and multi-coloured surface, despite the fact that there is no support structure.
Thanks to the digital flexibility of WOOD—SKIN, our design team was able to model the cladding by following the opening of the door and the dimensions of the seating element with millimetric precision, ending with a delicate flourish at the glass of the entrance.
