KISTIC

KISTIC

KISTIC is a leading-edge hub of research and creation for various researchers in the industrial, academic and public sectors. For the design of the communal area, we created a space which would provide opportunities for the researchers to meet and exchange information. To meet these requirements, we put ‘bands’ carrying information around the walls in the area. The bands display signs, and can also be used by the residents themselves to give presentations or to put up notices. This encourages casual interchanges between the researchers moving through this area. These informational bands with gradations from black to white connect people to people, people to information.
