Chromatic screen

Young Portuguese studio LIKE Architects' latest project is a colourful space divider, an immersive experience in colour, opacity and transparency.

Young Portuguese architecture studio LIKE Architects have recently designed the Chromatic Screen installation on the occasion of the Oporto Show'12 . The installation was devised within the event's "Point of View" space, curated by studio design factory*.

The temporary installation Chromatic Screen creates a space divider composed of 2000 IKEA Bagis coloured hangers, in blue, green, pink and orange. In synch with LIKE Architects' line of work — the studio specializes in temporary, ephemeral installations composed of readily available materials — this coloured screen seeks to immerse the visitor in a powerful kinetic experience. Reinterpreting a common object of daily use, Chromatic Screen features diverse moments of opacity and transparency, mixing colours in varied intensities.
