Vibrant courtyard installation for design brand’s US debut

Magda Ibrahim
Wednesday 20 Feb 2019

Endemic Architecture created a colourful courtyard space for Hem’s first US showroom.

Designer Clark Thenhaus, director of Endemic Architecture, has created a bold and vivid outdoor space to complement the debut US showroom for Scandinavian design brand Hem.   

Confetti Courtyard is a vibrant installation that reimagines the space as a lively and kinetic layering of architecture, furniture, landscape, and social activity. 

The Confetti Courtyard, painted directly on the surfaces of the space’s floor and walls, celebrates the immersive and collaborative nature of Hem’s new West Coast headquarters in downtown Los Angeles through the layering of colorful graphic shapes. 

Distributed throughout the courtyard as though they are oversized pieces of confetti, the graphics wrap up the walls and fold down onto the floors, framing the courtyard as an immersive, colourful environment.

Confetti Courtyard sets a uniquely animated backdrop for ongoing programming, activation, and display for Stockholm-based Hem.
