Panuša is award-winning project for modern, authentic space of the Café-Creperie in Novi Sad. The most distinctive part of the interior is wooden ceiling, designed by DDC-make computational design group, for the Modelart architects studio. The biggest challenge in interior branding strategy for the cafe was to emphase attractiveness, creativity and distinct culinary approach of a client through unique design of ceiling. Expressive light installation, through parametric wooden ceiling design, gives a recognizable visual identity to this space. It is created utilizing combination of dynamic geometry and perforated diamond pattern design whose result remains in the visitors mental map.
Wooden ceiling consists of 75 unique inverted pyramids with perforation that gradually change density and size of round holes. Diamond grid pattern of pyramid follows main circulation path in the cafe. For the intricate and complex design of the wooden ceiling DDC-make create parametric model for the automated workflow and file-to-factory documentation for digital fabrication. Wooden ceiling is made of 6mm tick triangular panels which meet with edges beveled with different angles. Design-to-fabrication approach enables automatic generation of model ready for CNC manufacturing individual elements and fast assembly process.
