SURFACES REPORTER (SR) spoke with Imaan Singh Bhullar to gather more details. Have a colourful read:
Talking about the ideation of this unique and intriguing concept, Bhullar shares, "The starting point for the conception was visiting the location of the project, none of the project team members had been to Solan before. We wanted to immerse ourselves in the context of the city, understand what it looks like from the inside and, of course, get to know its inhabitants. We were very inspired by this trip and were imbued with the concept that our client planned to implement. We returned to our studio enthusiastic about making a unique design project, very atmospheric and authentic."
"Conceptually, we decided to wash the walls, floors and everything else in a monochromatic mood, in three basic colour tones - as clean and open as possible, he continues.
With a very clear vision of the project, to deliver a space with such clarity of spaces & colour schemes. The challenge was the selection of materials and the development of the lines that governed the spaces. The space was divided into 3 colour zones, each complimenting the other.
"The intent throughout the project was to wash anything and everything in the colour dedicated to the zone. It included everything from the furniture -to the menu to the lighting!" he remarks.
Addition of Flora
The final touch was created by the flora, amplifying the entire theme and not overpowering it. '
Thus the firm achieved its intent to create an authentic atmosphere ‘Ruled by a monochromatic mood’.
Role of lighting :
Lighting played a major role in the project since each zone had a dedicated colour palette to follow in order to achieve a monochromatic mood.
Ambient Lighting: To achieve the accurate colour RGB WWH LED strips were used and guided via wireless drivers with in-app access.
General Lighting: The overall lighting was achieved using tiltable cylinder fixtures manufactured by Kriglow.
Spot Lighting: Track cylinders were very cleverly used to illuminate and highlight the aesthetic of the planters.
