Studio Toggle : Luminous Drapes

Overlooking the square of the Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Cultural Center in Kuwait City, Kuwait, Studio Toggle's pavilion to host the cultural forum "The Human Capital 2018" is a light and ethereal meeting place. A modular and malleable structure that allows to adapt to each type of event - debates, workshops or conferences - that shelters the place.

Composed of construction scaffolds - so reusable - and laser cut canvases, a whole set of 200 square meters of floor space alternates between full and empty cubic 3 meters of edges. This tripartite air shelter for participants' rest, appears as a set of contemporary sculptures, echoing the geometric facade of the cultural center designed by SSH Design.


Simply furnished with comfortable poufs and meeting tables, the pavilion is an outdoor conviviality zone focused on digital globalization, digital innovations and their repercussions of everyday life.

In this spirit, the clear and refined construction during the day is adorned with bright colors at night. Thanks to led bars directly attached to the metal structure, Luminous Drapes takes another look once the sun is down. The voluptuous veils are also equipped with luminous systems dyeing pink creating dynamic spaces, more festive. A nod to the world of new technologies honored at the event.

A simple realization, but full of character.
