Chamber is a site-specific response to the theme of threshold and entry to the Matchbox women’s clothing boutique, located within the Xintiandi retail centre. It aims to create a new, in-between space that extends and heightens the experience of arrival , leading visitors to the interior of the store via a fluid-like reflective floor. The chamber is formed from a series of self-supporting aluminium panels which create an organic shaped mirrored space. Elements of the store’s unique brand extend into the chamber for display, such as paper chairs and hand-made fabrics
