MISTRAL / Shopping JK São Paulo / Studio ArthurCasas
We had to conceive a space that would showcase the wine in a recreational way, justifying the physical presence of the client, attracting both new customers and connoisseurs.
The 100 square meters store is relatively small for the extent of the program: sales space, cellar, storage, interactive gallery, reading room and wine tasting. Adopting the curve seemed like the natural solution to integrate this multiplicity of spaces and evoke the sensorial perceptions of the wine.
We aimed to invite the customer to discover the unique content of each bottle. The curve creates a path where the spaces appear gradually. Suspended bottles follow the organic shape, formed by a backlight topped by a wood lath, giving the store an elegant and discrete atmosphere. A mirrored glass stripe hides several screens that are lit through the touch of white bottles placed in each wine section.

Plywood Dome v.2 via Kristoffer Tejlgaard
A geodesic dome, like the one put up by Kristoffer Tejlgaard and Benny Jepsen at the Danish music festival, Roskilde Festival in 2012, is a construction that optimises the use of resources to a high degree, by imitating natures own methods.
The molecular structure found in one given family of carbon molecules, is copied when constructing geodesic domes. This structure allows for great strength and stability, construction of large-sized spaces using a minimum of building materials as well as reduced energy consumption used for heating because of the minimal surface and aerodynamic form of the dome.
