SOGOKAGU DESIGN LAB*

Mie / 2015 / Laboratory

A workshop space for a furniture manufacturer which aims to unite new lifestyles and pioneering technologies. Urethane is mainly used in the architecture to respect the manufacturer’s brand identity, which specialises in urethane products. Iron framework is covered by urethane foam, which is then enveloped by 2 membranes on both sides, thus creating a skin-like, multi-layered façade. ETFE, which has high thermal resistance, is used on the exterior, while the interior is covered with meshed, transparent polyvinyl chloride. This natural robustness was also pursued in the main iron structural system, which consists of individual elements arrayed through a net-like form.

Interior has a vague, nebular space, achieved by combining fragments from 25mm thick plywood.
