umbrella stand

1999

The design for this stand was focused on the need to create a trade show system that possessed low assembly and storage costs, and at the same time maintained high quality formal standards.

With this in mind, a modular structure system with parts that could be easily assembled and stored within an extremely reduced volume of space was studied.

The base module is a shaped, poplar plywood structure with a metal joint that facilitates assembly operations.

The space inside is controlled and adjusted using printed, semi-transparent PVC separating panels and an integrated lighting system.

The wall closures are built using PVC canvas “skins” that can be interchanged and, as a consequence, easily renovate the outer appearance of exhibit space at a very low cost.

The same philosophy of easy assembly and storage space reduction was applied to the inner furnishings.
