Kar Studio has created a clothing and furniture store in China inspired by natural forms.
The project is located in Qinhuangdao, Hebei, and is an aesthetic space integrating furniture, clothing and art. The design was inspired by the powerful ancient Buddhist frescoes in the Dunhuang Caves on the Silk Road.
The overall colour of the scheme recalls that of the caves, with taupe microcement used to cover the ceiling, walls and ground to unify the space.
Kar Studio is known for fibreglass furniture – in this project the material is used for the first time as exterior decoration, presenting an extension of the elements of furniture from the indoor to outdoor.
