Shadows in the Windows

Shadows in the Windows portrays Hong Kong’s urban landscape through two symbolic elements: a window and a seat, in eight variations. The window is the architectural element that best represents urban density: thick patterns of windows cover building exteriors, and carve openings onto their interiors. The seat completes the representation with a reference to the lives that happen in those interiors. The eight variations share the same design concept: a square window frame and the contour of a chair. Yet each variation offers a different take on it. Shadows in the Windows is a metaphor of urban density, it represents the connection among the individual, the product, and the urban landscape. Shadows in the Windows was introduced at Superstudio Più during Milan Design Week 2017.
