PRODUCE's tailored plywood frame envelops herman miller shop in singapore
situated at the marina square in singapore, this herman miller shop-in-shop at XTRA’S latest flagship store includes an intriguingly massive structure coined ‘fabricwood’ and completed by design director pan yicheng from PRODUCE. occupying a twenty meter long by seven meter wide space, a plywood surface stretches across the entire site like a sail of tensile fabric, with symmetrical qualities that take on the proportions of the herman miller logo. t he minimal surface, which reminds one of german architect and structural engineer frei otto ’s soap film experiments, contains a series of arches that frame the entrances and connections to the rest of XTRA, the street and the adjacent café.
