- Designed patterns based on the office systems featured in the event to brand the space and call attention to the product’s construction and unique qualities. Patterns meandered through the space and corresponded to the product featured in the area. Designs were applied to windows, floors, water bottles, Charlie Trotter snack mix bags, aprons, mesh material on office systems, and sand blasted out of large monoliths.
- Created a soundscape with friends / collaborators that was designed to work with the showroom’s sound system to change your experience as you walked through the space. Mixed the audio live during the 2 day event. I even got a pedicure out of the deal (first!) because sandals were part of the uniform.
To test our patterns in the space and be as informed as possible before sending out the final_final designs, we printed our patterns on large format printers at kinko’s (these massive printers were used mostly by developers and architects to print blueprints) + layed them on the ground, taped them to the glass of the showroom, photographed the space and made adjustments to the files based on what we saw there. We made many trips back and forth from Bucktown to the Merch Mart that season.
