Achieving a highly personal and emotional effect, the stand suggests the image of a luxurious contemporary environment. On the floor, marble motifs in shades of brown are echoed on the reflecting patterned walls. The light is diffused and the general atmosphere is similar to a hotel lobby. A random composition of reflective perforated ceiling panels filters light from above in a play of shadows with an oriental flavor.
The agora - a gathering space and/or assembly in ancient Greek - is a strategic point in the Royal Ceramica world. Welcoming, meeting and conversing with the clients are the core of their business philosophy. This attitude became a main concept: a protected and isolated yet visible and open-to-all meeting space that took shape as an ellipsoidal lounge area bounded by a luminescent curtain of metal chain with the center marked by a huge chandelier made from copper tubing. The three kilometers of metal chain curtain is solid enough to create a clear and indisputable boundary and simultaneously light enough to move in a slow and smooth way the moment you cross it. This ‘medusa-like’ form - characterized by its shining movement - serves the dual purpose of a calling space that invites you to enter while simultaneously providing a certain degree of privacy when you are inside. Additionally, the subtle sound produced by the movement of the curtain highlights the sense of entering a different space.
