CHONGQING, China 600 sqm 2021

Shortly after Foshan, the next Tencent Industrial Internet Experience Center opens in Chongqing. Assuming that humanity is on the edge of expanding its own boundaries beyond the world we know, Area-17 designed the showroom as a futuristic spaceship housing the most innovative technology for B-to-B applications.

FOSHAN, China 620 sqm 2021

Tencent is a Chinese multinational technology company, among the world's top ones in the field. It is the largest video-game vendor and among the largest social media corporations. Credited as one of the world's most innovative companies, this naturally inspired Area-17 in envisioning the Tencent GBA Industrial Internet Experience Center as a place where the visitor can experience the extraordinary, rather than simply learning about a product or service. The showroom’s multimedia design is powered by WeShape (Beijing) Digital Technology Co., Ltd., which applied a variety of high-tech display equipment and interactive devices to shape a complete map of solutions connecting the physical to the digital world and to the cloud hyperspace.

China 2020

Deli PLUS is a young office furniture brand, co-founded by China's Deli Group and Japan's PLUS group. Area-17 has been supporting the project from the very beginning and was therefore able to permeate this new concept with Italian design’s culture and principles. The tree first showrooms - Hangzhou, Suzhou and Guangzhou - have been thought and realized simultaneously to mark the launch of this design venture and to set off a strong brand identity.

LONDON, England 440 sqm 2019

The Iris Ceramica Group showroom in London is a laboratory where people meet, interact, get inspired, learn, and nourish their creativity. Area-17 designed the interiors as if they were real-life environments, where the emotional and expressive potential of ceramics translates into furniture and solutions actively engaging visitors in the product’s storytelling. Distancing itself from a traditional way of exhibiting, the showroom revolves around a loose idea of connection, fully embracing the tentacular, dynamic vibe of the Old Street area.

FIORANO MODENESE, Italy 5'000 sqm 2018

The partnership between Area-17 Architecture & Interiors and Iris Ceramica Group continues with a renovation work that combines distinctive features of contemporary design with a great respect for what the brand means for its surroundings and the people living there. The refurbishment of the historic Iris Ceramica headquarters arises from two main needs: integrating the original building from the ’60s with the brand-new showroom’s volumes, and remodeling the interiors, which underwent a change in functions over the past decades. It also states the choice to consolidate a weighty brand identity and return it to employees and clients with a new, stronger visual image.

CASTELLARANO, Italy 2'000 sqm 2018

For the restyling of the Italian Ariostea headquarters’ interiors, Area-17 drew inspiration from the brand’s core values: technological innovation and maniacal attention to detail. The 2'000 sqm office building occupies 2 floors, connected at both ends by double-height volumes providing wide perspectives as well as a visual and physical tie among spaces.
