More about this product

For the Joy City project, anySCALE was tasked with bringing new life to a portion of the shopping mall. A large section of the 4th floor was cleaned up to create a young and fresh new concept. The client specified a live events space that would appeal to shoppers attracted by the trendy local clothing vendors. The area was designed with dance club elements such as a bar, DJ table, and lighting displays not traditionally expected in a mall setting. The event programs and artistic video installations were all concepts by the MVM design label.

Design leader Karin Hepp decided to create a unique space which would inspire the imagination and make one feel that they are no longer on Earth, but floating in outer space. To replicate this feeling, aluminum foam was utilized. Stabilized aluminum foam panels were used on the façade, interior walls, and ceilings. Hanging displays of clothing and artwork were also used to add to the floating feeling. In the final build, aluminum paneling, a live DJ, bar, and LED lighting elements were placed to finish the design. Joy City building includes over 1000 m2 of Alusionaluminum foam material from Cymat Technologies Ltd.
