Gallery Design in Rio De Janeiro
Horne recently recieved an email from Triana Serrano who recently worked on the development of an exhibition in Casa Cor 2011, Rio de Janeiro.
Like most galleries, the idea was for the walls to be mainly white. White backgrounds are meant to focus the attention on to the piece. More than any other color, we see white as a color of neutrality. Solid choice for a background of a gallery.
The space itself holds a striking minimalistic appeal. White and black form a sharp contrast on the walls while the sparse furniture and massive open-glass windows form a beautiful and functional space to appreciate the art. The formality of the minimalist space definitely suits the world of the gallery.
Simple, clean lines counterpoint the glass liner and facade.
Being form-and-function aware, the glass is Guardian's Climate Guard Light, reducing the damage solar rays can cause to human and art alike.
Facinating about this space is the darker section of the wall. Floating 40 cm above the floor, the wall is covered in Corten steel. The section seems to be suspended in space making it all the more striking.
The huge appeal of this gallery - also a big surprise - was the mirror-ceiling that increases the feeling of space, expands the sense of light and creates interesting dynamics for the entire artistry of the attendance to be viewed under.
Advertising and art combined when three meter images were displayed on the glass facade, making them viewable from both inside and outside of the gallery.
An antique piece of Analdo Danemberg wooden furniture was used to tie the space together.
