Tales Pavilion in Beijing was designed by Luca Nichetto in 2013. The façade of the pavilion is covered in 1,200 brass tubes conceptualised as “grass leaves” that camouflage the entire structure. The “brass leaves” oxidise and change colour naturally with the passing of the seasons, merging with the natural scenery of the Beijing Lido Garden and giving a sense of life to the pavilion. A bronze framework of large straight-cut windows gives onlookers a glimpse of a warm and cozy interior.
The reception and business area of Tales is surrounded by various design showrooms, which each feature different materials and colours to accentuate the outlines. Organised across multiple gradients of light, all of these areas create a sense of micro-urbanity, encouraging interaction between visitors and design lovers alike.
