Go Down the Rabbit Hole at This Whimsical Exhibition Center
2023 Best of Year Winner for Product Exhibition
Alice and the White Rabbit would feel right at home in “Wonderland of Light and Shadow,” Pone Architecture’s mind-bending booth for Nippon Paint at China’s annual Guangzhou Design Week, the largest such event in Asia. The 3,300-square-foot structure comprised a mazelike arrangement of ceilingless spaces above which hung a monumental grid of inverted pyramids, their form inspired by the shape of a character in Nippon’s Chinese name. An interactive lighting column descended from the tip of each upside-down frustrum, illuminating the surrounding walls and sculptural installations, which were painted to evoke the course of a day, from the dusky pink of sunrise through noon’s intense orange to the soft blues and violets of twilight—a magic journey between dream and reality.
