About this project

The Fitting Room (Origami Tree) : Mamou-Mani and Arup Associates have collaborated on the creation of a giant sculptural origami piece that activates the store facade of Davidson Tsui, in Xintiandi Style, Shanghai. Customers and passers-by can interact with the installation by posing in the window “Wearing” an oversized architectural “hat” and “dress” that animate the windows and facade of the shop. The curved feminine form of the exterior contrasts with the masculine triangular interior and reflects the notion of duality (ying-yang) in Chinese culture. The installation is part of the RIBA Shanghai Window Display Project 2014. The 8 Cabinets: Xintiandi Style owners and developers SHUI ONLAND has asked Mamou-Mani and Arup Associates to design 8 cabinets at the entrance of the mall to introduce some of the brands participating in the RIBA Window Project (Davidson Tsui, Moleskine, EIN, Tayohya).
