A small accessories boutique Lika Lab has opened in the Chinese city of Hangzhou. Architects from Say Architects studio designed it with radical minimalism, but used unusual materials to give the interior charisma. The main role in the project was played by furniture and panels made of translucent “milk” acrylic, which brought a poetic ethereality and airiness to a rationally organized space.

“Customers asked to use saturated colors in the interior — pink and blue, which could distract attention from the product,” the authors say. – That’s why we proposed the concept of “dematerialization”: she weakened the influence of accent colors and balanced them with steel and acrylic surfaces”” Laconic partitions and screens on windows, tables and stools are made of milky acrylic, which “clouds” the color inserts integrated into them.

Acrylic elements look especially impressive against the background of smooth glossy surfaces: a nude-colored floor, a mirrored table, shelves and panels made of highly polished steel. The soothing geometry of right angles, which dominates the interior of the boutique, is picked up by neutral pieces of furniture — a white block sofa and armchair, a simple rectangular mirror, linear lamps on the ceiling.
