MARTINS ARCHITECTURE OFFICE

Structure, Surface, Geometry

We were invited to think a Product Design exhibition - Design de Produto a Norte - over the latest works of the designers Carlos Aguiar, Toni Grilo, Hélder Cação and Ricardo Abreu.
Curated by Paulo Cruz, President of Institute of Design of Guimarães, the project defined a thirty-meter long white surface divided over three parallel lines which integrate a few exceptional geometries (with different heights) to adjust to the product quotidian. It was set a new artificial illumination to point the surface longitudinally. The structure aims to be read as a bone which is adjusted according to the skin.
