The architectural installation, designed for Dutch magazine Eigen Huis & Interieur, plays with perceptions by splitting the space into two zones: one side is stark white, while the other side features bold and brightly coloured walls and floors. The distinction between the two is highlighted with mirrored boxes placed within both areas of the pavilion, reflecting the opposite side’s colours. Each of the mirrored boxes holds display cabinets filled with playful and experimental household objects, further illustrating the contrast between the emptiness of the pavilion and the opulent displays.

The surprising experience for users makes the pavilion a place for contemplation, the intention to create an awareness of living that is not just about the products people buy, but the environments they are placed in.
