Winy Maas, co-founder of the Dutch studio MVRDV, has transformed an industrial building into offices full of light and transparent features. The interiors stand out for the exposed cables and conduits, in a contrast with the glass and steel materials.
133 Wai Yip Street is a building where everything is visible – a glass office – conceived to create and communicate transparency in the workplace.
One of the most important features of the new building is The Concurrency, a magnificent chandelier that greets visitors at the entrance, a glass sculpture with dynamic lighting produced by Lasvit. This is the company’s first project in which the system of ceiling cables is entirely on view. The resulting spider effect is similar to a printed circuit board.
The Concurrency has been entirely produced in the Czech Republic. The structure formed by welded stainless steel arms is covered with layers of poured and blown glass, filling up all the gaps. After cooling, the form of the lamp was finished with micro-sanding and polishing. The result is an extraordinary light sculpture.
