Originated in Spain and located in Hangzhou, the Techsize global flagship store adheres to the spirit of “feeling new beauty and exploring new trends in art and design” to convey the brand concept of “creating a beautiful living space”. Breaking through the traditional display logic, the design does not focus on displaying product features, but to present the spiritual core, thus creating a space full of art and a living atmosphere.
Transcendence and experiment
The two designers from different cultural contexts complement and contrast in respective perspectives and understandings, interpreting the flexibility of spatial scale, the spirit of details, and the tension of creativity.
Explored, collided, reorganized, and combined, they often worked and communicated until the early morning. Gradually, their respective inspirations are overlapped in a three-dimensional way.
Between architecture and nature, design and aesthetics, unity and change, balance and emptiness, their creation is not to design shapes but to create life.
So, eastern art and western culture collided in the interlaced time and space, in which the common beauty of good design, products, and craftsmanship is generated through the control of density and rhythm. When the visitors stepped into that hazy and implicit tension of space, the infinite possibilities of space can be felt.
Departure and Arrival
First and foremost, it is an aesthetic life museum.
The ink-colored building stands still in the surrounding irregular mapping waterscape, and what makes people stop and watch is the freehand brushwork revealed from the wide windows: the layers of parallel lines are the background, the flexible water ripple texture is an ornament to space, and a long case is used to bring out the theme.
The window at the entrance presents a scene of a family dinner, where people can sit and share their thoughts on life. Waiting for the time to go by, have a drink, and enjoy the lush greenery outside the window.
However, people who enter cannot directly reach this space. The first thing they step into is a roundabout way made by the Techsize rampart, which is like hills, water, clouds, and fog. The vast and strong sense of mystery attracts visitors to go deeper into the stillness to explore further. When ascending step by step, the open and flat way suddenly turned into a bridge on the water, which is a long and narrow path in a pure black background with scattered white dots, as if walking in the Milky Way.
The most awesome thing is a “flying bird” suspended in the crevice of the canyon where light penetrates. Made from superimposed metal plates and bearings, it slowly opens wings in the canyon.
Wandering in this space, visitors can not only feel the exquisite products and craftsmanship but also imagine the infinite possibilities of customized application of Techsize slabs, as well as the possibilities to explore humanities, art, and aesthetics. In such a complete space integrated with nature, humanities, and technology, a journey full of energy that travels thousands of miles in openness starts from here.
