TRES-ARCHITECTS OFFICE had a design of the entrance hall in Shibuya, Tokyo. Float in the air reception counter.
Reception counter in the entrance hall of 4 companies share related to mobile communications. These companies have been developing software and hardware for the expansion of mobile communications in the future, while there are some elements that make a futuristic, connecting people together, We feel companies also do business that combines human element somewhere.
We have designed the entrance hall while having such a futuristic image, an image that combines human, biological somewhere there.
This counter is the length of about 3m, but floating in the air out from the wall. We were the image of Stanley Kubrick “2001: A Space Odyssey”. To talk about something while floating in space, such as “monolith” that appeared in the movie, also speaks to visitors at the entrance hall reception counter.
In addition, We were wearing bright colors like bright part of the Hall. It becomes a bright light into the pitch-black space, you can imagine the scene of the dawn. At this entrance hall this counter will talk visitor the expectations of people’s lifestyles and evolution of these 4 companies.
This reception counter made of wood. Unlike the image of the near future “2001: A Space Odyssey”, like driftwood floating in the sea, we are told that it is also important to convey the culture of a foreign country far away by primitive way (for example, to talk face-to-face) .
