Architect & Design Interviews #15 – Magda Grzybowska-Czana & Fortito
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 mind masters behind designs of these acoustic artworks. We simply will call these newsletters Interviews #.
This week we’ve been chatting to interior architect Magda Grzybowska-Czana about the Fortito Sarpsborg event space her agency designed and developed.
What were your initial thoughts about this project?
We wanted to create a friendly environment for Sarpsborg bowling club fans. At the same time it should be a welcoming and vibrant place for people not necessarily focused on that sport. So the feel of the interior needed to appeal to a wide customer base.
Why did you choose BAUX products?
We chose BAUX products as they not only provide the necessary acoustic attenuation, but aesthetically they can add a real feature to a space. For the bowling club, the BAUX products used assist in creating a space that looks unusual, fresh and modern.
How did colour transform the space?
We used Diagonal Wood Wool Panels on the back wall because the texture and pattern in the natural finish looked great against the logo made of red neon. Black 3D Pixels were put on the ceiling, which can usually be the most boring part of many clubs. This pixel design transformed the ceiling into a feature that played an important role in the overall design for the interior.
How did you go about choosing the right pattern for the project?
Ultimately, the pattern had to be right for the overall design. We knew that within the BAUX product range we could find the most suited match, as we have successfully used BAUX products many times before. We felt that the diagonal pattern worked really well with the neon and the large modern lamps used in the main area. We also used the 3D pixel design to give the space a little more of a “clubbing vibe” helping to bridge the gap between our client’s daytime & nighttime operation.
