Street Murals Will Add Dynamism to Graffit’s Interior
The spacious, glazed reception areas for the new Graffit office building in Warsaw will feature striking internal ‘street’ murals, created by Daniel Kaliński Chazme 718 and Robert Proch. The art injects a colourful dynamism to the interior spaces, creating expressive spaces to compliment the art, the architecture and the location.
Both of the artists and the team of architects worked together from the outset on the concept with a particular focus on the composition, positioning and content. The building design blends the boundary of the exterior and interior with referenced finishes and a light filled dynamic form. Internal murals are carefully placed to invite and guide movement through the common areas.
“In the narrative sphere, the murals presents a dynamic human movement – human relations and architecture. By combining a figurative part with elements of contemporary architecture, we tried to refer to the modern nature of the building’s interiors as well as the dynamic activity in it that plays out.”
