Hakwood will collaborate with Shape London this year to deliver an exciting, interactive installation at Clerkenwell Design Week named ‘Behind Closed Doors.’
Hakwood’s ‘Behind Closed Doors’ will be a 3.2 m high installation designed and fabricated by Shape London. It will be a miniature street-scape that draws inspiration from the Dutch home of Hakwood as well as Shapes’ South East London Design Studio.
Shape London will design a pop up street scene of tall town houses located at the entrance to Spa Fields, in close proximity to the Exmouth Market area. The decorative houses will be clad with Hakwood Wall Tiles where each house will have its own unique pattern sharing the same colour pallet. Each house includes a small door revealing a series of miniature interiors designed by various architects from Shape’s Dragon Fly Place Collective demonstrating that any interior, any décor is an open door for creative inspiration. The hidden rooms will be placed at various heights to invite visitors to interact with the installation and ‘discover’ all the rooms. Each of these miniature scenes will contain Hakwood flooring and be decorated by a different architecture practice from the South East London community to create a true mix of design styles.
