Learning Centre – First Prize, Elle Decoration Design Awards
The design’s main theme is communication, a compulsory tool for survival in nowadays urban context. Whether it is about face-to-face or virtual communication, this learning centre has been equipped accordingly. Thus, one of the project’s greatest challenges – cable management – has eventually turned into a great asset, making everything possible without compromising the design.All installations, graphic design and decorative walls have been custom-made for this project by Miruna Pavoni and are meant to symbolize urban landscapes, noise, the need of communication and other elements that define the urban context.
Mirunette Concept Office – Second Prize, Elle Decoration Design Awards
The design makes good use of all of its space, bringing maximum efficiency and flexibility in a friendly, dynamic and inspiring environment. The ceiling installation, custom-designed for this project and signed by architect Miruna Pavoni, is the office’s main point of interest, catching one’s eye right from the moment one steps in – subtle, intriguing yet inviting, it drives the way right to the main office space. The petrified mortarboards (graduation caps) seem to work as testimonials for both solid education and for every student that crossed the local barrier to achieving international recognition.
“Both Mirunette Concept Office and the Learning Centre are working environments that stimulate creativity, the color scheme and the use of unusual objects used as decorative items create a fun environment in contrast to the usual offices that are often sad and aseptic.”- Davide delGiudice, Senior Architect, ZahaHadid Architects.
