Architects design concept retail space for Italian furniture brand 

Collaborative Architecture's project was part of a design showcase by Universal Expo and Index Media as a part of their 2008 Trade expo in Mumbai, India. 10 prominent practices in the country were given a space of 5m x 5m to come up with conceptual and space making ideas.

PROTOTYPE N[ON] as the name indicates is a prototypical installation devoid of any imminent/obvious functional connotation - a pure spatial exercise to test new strategies for conceiving and evolving new spaces. At Index it worked as a concept retail space for the Italian furniture brand MOROSO.

The project explores the potentials of construction tectonics in giving unique character to the space generated. The panels are the building blocks of PROTOTYPE N[ON] and they are weaved instead of stacked to form the architectural space. The panels are made of MDF boards with mild steel frameworks, which were pre-fabricated and erected at site. The whole pavilion is finished with acrylic emulsion paint.
