The Selfie Wall is a vertical “painted scape” in which there are a great variety of silhouette and funny drawings proposing and suggesting different positions for interactions and photography.



This project it is one of the first that we have done, It was developed in our shanghai studio yet executed and build in Lisbon Portugal for a private event in 2014. It is only a prototype since it was there only for a few days amusing people in the event.

Painted Scape

Product definition

The Painted Scape is a 2d architectural configuration, which is painted and/or coated to cover a significant area of an existing urban scape. This architectural configuration only intervenes – whether vertically or horizontally - on the surface of the space.
 
The interaction takes place in the interface between the user and the painted surfaces - vertical or horizontal - in which the users finds information, signals, functional areas and spaces.
 
The main objective of the painted scape is to call attention to the existing space, inject it with a unique identity, and highlight spatial functions with 2d aesthetics. Through these actions, this intervention makes a formerly unremarkable space an attraction for users and customers.
