Nichetto's pavilion sits within a garden and houses a range of design showrooms.
The tube facade is a reference to blades of grass and the landscaped setting in which the pavilion sits.
The brass tubes will oxidise and change colour naturally as time passes.
Behind the facade sit large bronze monoliths with generous windows revealing the exhibition spaces inside.
The reception and business area in the centre is clad in elm wood recycled from old houses in the Hebei province.
White plaster and concrete floors provide a plain backdrop for the products on sale in the showrooms.
The first floor mezzanine is lit by a large skylight, which is embedded within the exposed concrete beams.
The railings are decorated with gridded lattice work that references the plan of the building, and the same pattern is used for the window in the reception area, rugs and air-conditioning grids.
The pavilion opened to coincide with Beijing Design Week, which took place from 26 September to 3 October.
Other pavilions that have featured on Dezeen include an austere concrete pavilion in Lisbon with a staggered corridor and a hidden courtyard and a temporary pavilion by Shigeru Ban made from cardboard tubes. See more pavilions »
