The large art installation honeycomb is located in the core corridor of the third floor of SCP PLAZA, shenzhen, China. Influenced by the geographical location and the surrounding population, this shopping center’s commercial customer group is positioned as the top three main group of families, white-collar workers and parents and children. Therefore, in the transformation, we should focus on the international and contemporary, while focusing on creating the main atmosphere of life and home, making the experience more humane.

The design was initiated with the interpretation of atmosphere of buildings, shopping malls and people-ended with a shopping center with both fashionable and warm feelings. Three layers of individual Loft design style contribute to the high degree of openness, transparency and artistry exhibited in the whole interior space. In order to meet the certain-floor business need of the children industry for increasing children’s interest and experience, we captured inspiration from nature to add perceptual elements to the space so as to achieve a balance between architectural character and customer group.

Just as the industrious bees build honeycomb to make sweet honey, so too do the diligent Shenzhen citizens use their own wisdom to develop Shenzhen into an influential international city up to now. For this reason, the idea of “honeycomb” was proposed accordingly.

People in the space
The facility is set in the central corridor inside the shopping center,the passage is conducted through intersection,subtracting and division between comb honey cube and multiple balls.Inside there are different arches connected with each other,set on the ground with self-balance force.A bee lands at the center to lead a dynamic experience in the space.Unitary stainless steel is applied with 3D data generation and 3D laser cutting technology to construct a children amusement park.In going through the different spaces,one can enjoy joyful scenes all the time,as if eating the cubic comb honey to the heart’s content. This not only brings more joy to the family, but also attracts more people into the shopping mall interactive experience.
▼装置丰富人们在商场中的体验，the installation enriches people’s experience in the shopping mall
Honeycomb, data technology, installation and leisure space are integrated into the travel experience. The whole hive gives a sense of the joy of eating a few mouthfuls of honey.The design element of honeycomb is a straight line, and the design element of the queen bee adopts arc line,3D data generation and 3D laser cutting technology are used to make the art installation exquisite.The intersecting reduction of the square body and the sphere increases the interesting variability of the honeycomb,and the mechanical characteristics of the arch structure can balance the force itself. The interactive experience of data aesthetics and space in the path of space travel leads to the interweaving of children’s happiness, forming a feeling of atmosphere.We hope that the design can be integrated with nature, data technology and emotion, so that the design has vitality.
