Mezzi Master (Bookshop) by Ajax Law & Virginia Lung
2016 - 2017, Golden A' Interior Space and Exhibition Design Award Winner
Inspiration
The designers have adopted the concept of “staircase” as the theme of this project, where it is used as a metaphor. When someone ascends from one level to another, he/she walks in an upward motion, just like how we acquire knowledge and gain wisdom as we read more and more. Apart from that, the staircase acts as a bridge between different levels, creating a sense of connection between different areas of the building. Interestingly, the theme also echoes the Chinese name of Mezzi Master’s parent company, which means “stepping upwards”.
Creativity
The iconic enormous dark red sculptural staircase serves as a product display platform and seating for readers, encouraging readers to walk to other levels. The staircase itself is an art piece, the lower end of each step goes slightly inwards to create a richer and dynamic vibe. Custom-made bookshelves are vertical version of stairs to match with the theme.
