Entry DescriptionProject LINES & MOTION is a take on designing an office workspace with an approach of total contrast to the conventional workspaces. Envisioning an interactive workspace, the client approached us for designing a 1260sqft office space with a stringent budget. The simplified clean floor plan intrigued us with the idea of a single sleek long table for the whole workspace. The massive scale of the table was to be reflected on the ceiling as a single volume, in a form of a light installation. Creating a volume which wouldn’t overpower yet have a stark dominant character initiated the explorations on acrylic. The shortcomings of the material defined its vertical placement as panels. With the concept of layering, etching was done on the panels which created a complex web work and mesh of lines. The curvilinear grooves hold the panel with the light source running on top. The motion in lines brings out the dynamic character of the ceiling wherein one can experience a new form from different angles. Instead of being an object of beautification, the installation lives in the space reacting to the user through the medium of his vision.
