Fabricwood named World Interior of the Year for 2017

Berlin hosted an overview of world architecture on February 15 through 17. During the World Architecture Festival, the German capital also hosted the INSIDE Festival of Interiors. There were 78 finalists in the 2017 competition, divided into nine categories and selected out of more than 200 competing interiors. The biggest prize was World Interior of the Year 2017, awarded to the Fabricwood installation designed for the Xtra store in Singapore by Produce.Workshop.

The installation looks like a fabric, specifically a quilted fabric, but is actually a wooden surface, hence the name “Fabricwood”, moulded and modelled using traditional tailoring techniques. The project underlines the particular features of the Herman Miller brand operating the store. Inspired by ergonomic research for the brand’s chairs, the architects of Produce.Workshop designed a wooden surface combining form, structure and innovation, a 20 m x 7 m veil of lightweight plywood forming an enormous canopy in the store. A skin creating a comfort zone in the store, in which to create a welcoming, casual atmosphere for exhibiting the brand’s furnishings and the chairs inspiring it.
