arteBA’s vip lounge. Buenos Aires, Argentina (2016) ,

Our understanding of this kind of events is that they are moments of celebration, moments where people related with the world art, such as artists, art dealers, collectors and curators share a specific space during a very specific time.
Thus we assume that the space has to response to a double condition. On one hand providing an open and fluid ambient and on the other offering an atmosphere of privacy where simultaneity of meetings and conversations can take place.
In response of this double condition, our proposal uses carpets as the only element to organize the space. Through the accumulation of these elements we found the potential of creating a mosaic that can colonize the available space no matter its shape or geometry.
To reinforce the geometry that the carpet mosaic creates, artificial lighting is designed within a triangular structure where every node is located in coincidence with the carpets centers. The whole lighting structure is hanged over the space, showing its formal linking to the geometry displayed on the floor.
The boundary of the space it’s created as reflect of the pattern that both geometries creates, a mirror cladding multiplies the connections between them.
