Here's another project by Shanghai-baed architect Nobuhiro Nakamura of A-Asterisk, this time an interior signage system called Signterior.
The system helps people navigate within an office and shopping development in Shanghai.
See A-Asterisk's Leafy Shade interior in our earlier story.
Here's some info from the architect:
"SIGNTERIOR" is a project which we designed a space, using signages to guide people.
This complex building has 3 areas. Shopping area, SOHO area, and office area.
Also there are several entrances, and several elevators to go to each areas.
It is easy to get lost like this complex building, so we created 3 signages to guide people to each areas.
It is a new concept of creating space.
