At the center of the showroom the sample´s area is found. It has a high bar 6 meters long and a 4 meters high bookcase. Subsequently the heart of the showroom is reached, a 33 meters long double height open space where the novelties are displayed.

Inside of the showroom all the spaces have both natural ventilation and light. Additionally, the acoustic material plays a main role taking advantage of all the structural elements to place the panels that minimize noise and process sound efficiently. Being an open space and with no interruption of central columns or another structural element, all the installations were placed under the elevated floor with a Byrne system for the electrification of the furniture, allowing a great flexibility to reorganize and reconfigure the showroom.

The materials are divided in two categories, what is installed and what is on display. What is installed are marbles, acoustic panels, wallpaper, engineering wood floors and paint finishing on the walls. The materials on display are dust cap carpets on the access, LVT in circulations and carpet in the operative areas, private offices and meeting rooms, allowing everything to be versatile and reconfigurable.

Regarding the plafonds, the double height was left untouched in the showroom and for the closed spaces a translucid tightened plafond was installed for greater breadth.
