MY DVA showroom
Located in the city of Brno, the design brief was to redevelop the showroom in a way that was ‘cheap, ideally free’. Their solution was to create a sculptural facade requiring minimal interference with the original building, while also connecting the choice of material to the company’s production.
The chairs cover three sides of the 550 sq. m space, with an angular, black-boxed entrance protruding from the irregular surface of the exterior wall.
The showroom floor is an open, central space with an exposed concrete ceiling and a white screed floor. Polycarbonate partitions form the walls to the staff offices, which are situated along the perimeter of the gallery space.
Three circular spaces are delineated by white curtains to form separate galleries for school furniture, office furniture and design pieces.
The flexibility of the showroom's layout means the space can be easily adjusted for specific events and exhibitions.
