We were asked by Just/Burgeff Architects to design a digital highlight for their building project Westend Gate by Aberdeen Asset Management, a revitalization of a 1976 high-rise next to the Frankfurt Fair.
The five monitors have been carefully arranged and occluded to create a dynamic yet elegant shape in the room.
The brief called for a business index with refined elegance on a tight budget. We took inspiration from the charming Just/Burgeff facade details and created an info-wall with high-resolution monitors that slowly animate the undulating wedges in a smooth motion.
Using vvvv as the engine of choice, we were able to run seamless, smooth animations over the entire info-wall from just one computer, thus significantly lowering the total cost of ownership.
A little bit of interactivity adds what we like to call the MESO-factor: staff at the front desk have a small touch tablet at their disposal with which they can call up an individual greeting or way-finding message for new visitors.
