If we think deeper, the majestic is the sum of the small; as well as the city is made up of buildings, buildings are made up of interiors, and the latter are composed of diverse objects. In this ambience, Savvy Studio designed a series of furniture for a bookshop with MDF smart Masisa, where the material's versatility allowed Savvy to recreate a proposal that appeals to architecture as interpreter of space, distinguishing the objectual of the monumental, fundamental elements in the history of a city and its memoir. The proposal is a semiotic dialogue between the object, architecture and the city to understand the action of "living". Savvy Studio is a multi-disciplinary studio dedicated to developing brand experiences that generate emotional links between clients and their audience.

Savvy Studio as Designers

Masisa, Mexico’s leading MDF panel producer, invited Savvy Studio to design a pavilion for Casa Bosques bookstore at the 2013 Mexican Design Open that would convey the quality of their materials and the spatial affinity that is established within the locations they are used in.

When looking up close, one can understand how great things are made up of smaller pieces. Cities are made up of buildings, these in turn are made up of interiors which themselves are made up of individual objects.

Architecture helps us interprete these sequences as a spatial structure. It also helps us to appreciate individual works and monuments as fundamental elements of a city’s history and a collective memory.

The proposal expreses an allegory between object, interior and city – an approach towards a qualitative dimension, essential for understanding human dwelling.
