Both spaces represent the individual gamer’s ideal alcove; an immersive experience that is not only aimed at gaming, but to also create stimulating environments.
In the two projects, Vodafone’s iconic red becomes the symbol of the power of the network and the technology, transforming every corner into a potential set for their content. At the same time, the spaces are made to be extremely comfortable.
A multi-set system has been developed to allow the creators to produce live-streaming content in continuity, even moving from one room of their flats to another, as if they are in a television studio.
The design of Favij’s flat has a number of different features. Each room has been studied to deal with the theme of gaming but from different points of view. One corner takes influence from the 1980s with neon and sci-fi graphics, while the living room becomes an area for more relaxed content and console gaming, as opposed to PC gaming. In this environment, LEDs and shapes make the room a more contemporary space, as do the design pieces of Kartell. In the gaming room, the environment becomes intense, thanks to the diffuse black walls and dynamic lights. Artwork and collectables inspired by Faij’s passions are placed throughout the room, like the Roblox bookcase that refers to the popular Japanese television genre of anime. The snack-dispensing computer and a spaceship themed door add a feeling of intimacy to the room, allowing Favij to connect more with his audience.
The design of Pow3r’s room reflects the streamer’s passions of style and spirit. The space is divided into two sections, one dedicated to gaming, and the other for more relaxed live events. In the first section, the dark colours and contrasting hexagon-shaped LEDs invade the space. In the second section, light bounces off the large iridescent curtains that form the backdrop. The central space is occupied by designer armchairs from Driade.
