Cafe BMB is an Art Cafe connected to the BMB Contemporary Art Gallery. A crucial design construct was the “painting layers of opacity” into the design system and the control of visibility across the porous material threshold of the system. Quite literally the project explores painted zones of more or less opacity . . . paint brushed with pixels and bytes. The clean stark display panels within the gallery space fold back into tessellated skins with differentiated perforations ranging from 5mm to 50mm. CNC’d DuPont Corian was used for the pixel brushed tessellated skin in the gallery and cafe space.
