The Italian-Chinese design studio 3GATTI redesigned SND’s fashion store located in Chongqing, China, creating a large-scale installation that covers the ceiling of the entire store with thousands translucent fiberglass sheets.
“We imagined an elastic ceiling that was pulled down by the weight of these various objects. We used a very thin white translucent fiberglass material because of its fire resistance and the way it reacted to light, thus creating a ceiling landscape that would be a spectacular source beauty and emptiness; perfect for every fashion victim”, stated the architect Francesco Gatti.
More than 10,000 pieces of fiberglass sheets form a dynamic installation that creates a futuristic environment amplified by the mirrors on the walls. The clothing garments hang from the ceiling emerging as elements of the installation.
