for prada’s spring/summer 2016 women’s show, OMA’s research branch AMO investigates the perception of continuous space by hanging various fiberglass and polycarbonate panels from the ceiling of the industrial setting. conceived as an ‘indefinite hangar’, the plastic sheets serve as a virtual mold that defines the catwalk and seating areas, while the concrete ground area acts as the negative of the above scene. imagined as ‘stalactites’, the insertions manipulate the proportions and perspectives of the space, creating alternating levels of views and transparencies that introduce guests to a blurred horizon.

 

‘a synthetic dawn spreads through the room radiating opalescent reflections,’ explains the design team. iridescent lights shine through the ceiling highlighting the defined geometries of its modules. arranged in elliptical benches that are determined by the ceiling installation, they never perceive the room as a whole. the wall, floor and seats, covered in concrete, emerge as a remnant, disturbing the boundaries between seating and catwalk.’
