Haptic in RIBA Shanghai Windows Project
Haptic are working with the RIBA, the British Council and China Xintandi, as part of an ambitious exhibition project linking UK architects with retailers in Shanghai. Haptic are partnered with the Nordic inspired EIN whose ethos of “Elegance in Nature” is represented through a landscape and cloudscape, evoking the mountainous nature of the Nordic lands and dramatic skies.
The cloud is made from hanging fabric sheets and the landscape is made of timber, seemingly growing out of the shop floor and populated with mannequins that are dressed in matching fabric and take inspiration from Nordic fairytales and forest characters.
The ‘Design Your Style’ RIBA Windows Project 2014 will be launched in March 2014 and open for four weeks.
