Each Haworth showroom is fully embedded in the context and culture of its particular place. This showroom’s downtown location in Los Angeles is reflected in a design that incorporates the unique aspects of that city and that neighborhood. Los Angeles is a city where the distinction between indoor and outdoor is blurred; the classic Modern Case Study houses and designs of the 1950s and 1960s are emblematic of an architectural solution that is prevalent and foundational throughout the city. The design of the showroom references those relationships; the enclosed spaces have a ceiling plane that continues uninterrupted out to the splendid 360 degree views from its 48th floor penthouse location. Other elements of those houses are incorporated, such as their articulated structure and subtle color palettes. Overlaid on those architectural solutions is a reference to the gritty but creative and graphically exciting aspect of the downtown neighborhood itself. The “graffiti” and environmental graphics imbue the space with a vitality and energy that will be unique to this particular location.
