Museum Interior Design Installation
Created by Situ Studio, “reOrder” is a site-specific installation; it is an architectural design studio which is founded in 2005 in Brooklyn, New York. For help the visitors understand the impressive scale of the main entrance, the installation alters the current classical architecture as well as explore the architectural ornamentation which is allows the Grand Hall to not only be artfully decorated, but also functional.
LG Hausys donated its solid surfacing material for the project in order to create the entire installment. To construct the Great Hall’s furniture, the Slabs of the acrylic HI-MACS® Solid Surfaces are used. Which is currently are covered in elaborate fabric design, wrapped benches and tables are positioned at the bottom of the columns.
Which are then thermoformed into a range of the curved shapes and brought together in wedges to encircle the base of the columns, a specialized computer is used to precisely cut pieces of HI-MACS®. The finished furniture elements appear as extensions to the existing Doric architectural order, or as entirely new type of architectural ornamentation which is also functional.
