AIRELOOM SHOWROOM

Working closely with client E.S. Kluft, a luxury bedding manufacturer, the whole project was designed and executed in six weeks. A short modeling study that addressed spatial divisions and material transparency concluded with a series of wood slat dividers that provide a welcoming concave entry area, and a wide arch that ceremoniously centers two product lines while allowing open movement and visibility. One inch walnut stained poplar slats were used for the dividers. 3’ by 9’ Travertine marble slabs and blackened steel were also sourced and fabricated for a reception area in front of the showroom.

As architects, we design, draw, make models, coordinate, source material, coordinate, redline and coordinate. We do mockups in home depot and specify materials and dimensions with the millworker but we might never even see the finished space itself save for blurry and distorted images through WhatsApp or FaceTime.
