What do you do?
Always a hard question in the field of design. Generally, Spatial Motion designs space with motion.
The name stands for the movement that we want to trigger with spatial designs. Motion can be physical or psychological (or both). It can tell a story and make you emotionally moved. Or trigger you physically in the form of an experiance or (inter)action.
The goal of every project is to create a relation between human and space (movement physically and psychological). It’s about a spatial experience, in the form of an exhibition-, installation-, stand-, shop- or set-design. But perhaps this experiance can also be created at a festival or on public streets. Since we consider everything around us to be architecture.
How do you like to do that?
Generally we start with a project by research and inspiration, like duh! You have to develop a concept.
We want to support concepts rationally, but don’t want to lose the instinctively feelings about a project. Tell a story and create a context. The next step is making the interaction with both the environment and the user of the space or object possible. The combination and communication of material, color and shape are crucially important to me in this fase. Also because people should get the freedom to use designs instinctively and not forced. This proces doesn’t stop by the realisation of the project. Working on drawings or actually building the design should be part of the proces, where there is still possibility to reflect on what actually happens in real life with your design. This is because I hope to learn more about the routing, flow and ‘genius loci’ of a space. Because we think these aspects are very important for the useability of a design.
Interact with people or society is key to develop on all subjects (concept and development).
