Cloud DCS Headquarters by Arboit Limited  

Hong Kong-based design company Arboit Limited has designed the Cloud DCS Headquarters inside an existing 20.000 square meter industrial building located in Nansha (Guangzhou, China), in order to let the company’s name standing out in a competitive chinese IT market that has generally shown no interest in design.

Taking in account the name of the company, Cloud DCS, the theme of the project consists on the image of a stream of clouds containing knowledge carried by winds and defining flowing layers of fading tones of blue in the sky: its abstract nature portrays today’s digital communication.

This project translates into a figurative language the reality of the Internet as a truly important agent of change in our life and society. The main area of the project concerns 1.958 square meters, half of the ground floor area of the 20.440 square meter building

Dynamism of clouds is expressed by a layered ceiling 30 meters long sculpture, made of metal profiles painted in seven gradients of blue and covered by Barrisol’s stretch fabric back-illuminated by neon lights. The same rarefied artwork defined by the ceiling is reflected on the floor as a gigantic painting printed on the resin, creating the impression of walking on the sky.

Form always begins with a something. And then if that something occurs in another place, there is slippage involved and what is created as a result develops a parallel existence to the original thing. I have located my art in terms of reducing all objects to the attention they demand. This gives me a good shot at innovation, to put it boldly. -Richard Artschwager Read more
