HERMÈS & RDAI
Studio Samira Boon was commissioned by the Parisian architecture RDAI to design and produce a site-specific artistic facade that enhances the sense of aesthetic, as well as intimacy, for the Hermès Taikoo Li Qiantan store in Shanghai.

Being denser towards the ground and progressively transparent towards the sky, the facade lets the natural daylight in while offering clients a serene sense of privacy. The adaptive textiles change the way in which customers experience the sound, light, and space.
Due to the unique patterns, each panel is slightly different than the next. When seen from different perspectives and the changing sunlight, the appearance of the seclusive screens transforms constantly.
