Architect & Design Interviews #10 – Svenja Diekmann & Hem
All around the world, designers and architects are using the BAUX acoustic tiles and panels in exiting projects for exiting brands. In a series of newsletters we aim to introduce you to a selection of projects and the mindmasters behind designs of these acoustic artworks. We simply will call these newsletters Interviews #.
This week we’ve been chatting to Svenja Diekmann, Head of Design at Hem, about their pop up shop in New York City.
Tell us a bit about the project?
We wanted to take our brand to the US and along with several other Swedish brands we created a pop-up shop on busy Broadway to showcase Scandinavian design.
Why did you choose BAUX?
BAUX is great because it’s so adaptable. The tiles come in different colors and sizes, which means you can create designs that fit in any space.
How did the BAUX designs transform the space?
We had a lot of fun playing around with the Arch panel and decided on some 70’s inspired patterns with curves that flow. The designs brought something unique to the space. It’s great to be able to use different styles and colours in different settings within one space.
“The idea was to create a quiet oasis filled Scandinavian design in the loud and busy Broadway district. The wonderful thing about BAUX tiles is that you can match NCS colours, so we were able to match colours from our latest collection.”
How have people reacted?
The pop-up shop was a huge success and we plan on launching the same concept in other major cities in the US and Europe. The BAUX walls received a lot of attention and compliments. As we share the same clients, architects and designers, it was a great collaboration.
What’s your dream BAUX project?
I’d like to design a whole house with BAUX designs in different rooms with different furniture set-ups.
