8 projects with intriguing wavy wooden interior

April 20 2016

With the recent launch of our DecorSlat Ripple range of linear slats  with gentle curvy finish, we feel inspired to look around the world for projects that utilise glamorous wooden waves to create sophisticated and intriguing feature wall and ceiling. Here are our top 8 favourite projects.

1. T Boutique – Prague

The T Boutique located in Prague Street is an interior tea boutique that houses products of the Dilmah company.  The individual slats are made of Multiplex thickness and birch veneer. Distinctive elements from the original architecture were used. The center design is  the original skylight which geometrically follows the wooden slat structure.

2. 6 Degrees Cafe – Indonesia

The name comes from the six degrees of separation theory that each one is 5 or 6 steps away from any other person. The most attractive part of the cafe is the ceiling made out of timber slats equally spaced apart, creating a cave-like feel to the space. The curved timber slats not only create a powerful visual impact, it also provides a warm welcome atmosphere to the space.   The owner of the cafe envisions the place to be a meeting place of friends over a cup of coffee.

3. The Aesop store, IFC Mall, Hong Kong

This Aesop store in Hong Kong features a striking design created by Boston-based architecture practice NADAAA. The interior features a curvilinear design and a ceiling covered with contoured wooden fins that filter the light and shape the geometry of the space. The way the light creates shadows and defines the ceiling is absolutely marvelous, creating an inviting and warm atmosphere, an quiet oasis within the busy downtown Hong Kong.

Meyer Potz stores are synonymous with luxury – whether in Hamm, Kleve, Hamburg, Sylt or – now – Bochum. That is where Michael Meyer Liza & Yves has reopened with a brand new store concept, designed and realized by the architectural and interior design office of Blocher Blocher Partners. In the historical Kortum-Karree square, the “Who’s Who” of international fashion brands now has a stage from which to strut its stuff in the Ruhr Valley and beyond. The wavy ceiling shapes the store and becomes a focal point, offering the space a graphical and glamorous look.
