Restaurant, Autostadt Wolfsburg, 2007

The geometric structure developed for the project consists of a series of distorted hexagonal cells organized by a geometric pattern on the floor and the ceiling. The cells are developed and can be inhabited in different manners. They are made of 20mm-thick acryl panels that span 3.5 m from floor to ceiling and are covered with graphic patterns produced by a select group of young graphic designers from Japan.

The constituting grid in the floor is expressed as aluminum lines in the white polyurethane floor and in the ceiling as light strips that illuminate the restaurant. An algorithm was developed that runs as a Maya plug-in to minimize the number of angles and radii for the different panels.
