About Designplus Pavilion, a project by Space Encounters Office for Architecture
The exhibition pavilion was designed for the German spatial design agency Designplus and was open to the public for five days during the 2017 Euroshop Retail Trade Fair in Düsseldorf. The pavilion epitomizes window shopping, networking and speed dating. It consists of six archetypical rooms mounted on two circular platforms with a twist: every twenty minutes the centre ring rotates 60 degrees creating new, surprising scenarios each time. Inspired by Mary Murphy’s children’s book ‘Crocopotamus’ a total of 36 room combinations are possible. Enough to make your head spin and if that doesn’t there is also a bar in the centre.
The design offers a contemporary take on the traditional exhibition: a more autonomous and laid back approach to standing out from the crowd. It provides visitors and exhibitors a casual way of interacting. In line with this approach the pavilion has been boldly though neutrally materialized, consisting exclusively of green waterproof particle board.
