Architecture practice vPPR will present ‘Foam Dome’ at 100% Design 2014, an installation for the ‘Kitchens & Bathrooms’ hub sponsored by Turkishceramics. The ‘Foam Dome’ – inspired by indulgent bubble baths and cleansing spa experiences, will be a magnificent pavilion that focuses on the theme of well-being.
The sculptural geodesic dome is constructed with lightweight white mesh from which foam, composed of soap, water and air is released, creating a frothy, interactive breathing membrane. The remarkable installation will feature specially modified Turkishceramics products, alongside piles of soft white towels and reclining chairs to underpin the indulgent spa-aesthetic.
Jessica Reynolds, Director of vPPR Architects, comments, “We’ve designed Foam Dome around the idea of cleanliness, referencing an indulgent, purifying spa experience. Its effervescent, glistening, constantly changing envelope will draw visitors to the Kitchen and Bathroom hub. We think that the characteristics of foam offer a playful and complimentary approach to the beautiful curved glazed ceramic surfaces of Turkishceramics’ innovative products.”
Celebrating its 20th edition, 100% Design – the biggest design event in the UK – will return to Earls Court London this September with another strong line-up of Kitchens and Bathrooms brands.
