Degree lighting store, Phuket, Thailand By NPDA studio / Nutthawut Piriyaprakob Early in the year 2012, Degree Lighting Store, a new-generation-customized lighting store, has decided to open a new branch in Phuket, the famous, spectacular and colorful island located in the south of Thailand.
The main concept of the store is inspired mainly by its location, to be a part of the sea, and to get along with Phuket which is also known as “The Pearl of Andaman”. At the same time, the store must be hip, modern to get along with the concept of Degree Lighting.
To achieve the main idea, the interior white walls were put up not only to symbolize “Fish Scales” but also to protect the building from the sea strong west sunlight in the afternoon.
The screen walls were made from standard size white painted zinc sheet which are cut easily in straight line with no leftover materials. The light weight zinc ribbons were fold into zigzag shape in order to be able to stack up and self stand vertically.
As these zinc screens are made and installed by its highly skilled, in-house craft man, the store is now proving to its customers about how sophisticate their customized products can be. Furthermore, these walls also generate an incredible lighting effect and create appropriate indirect light for the backside space as well.
