Play your Style: Shanghai Windows Project at Xintiandi

Studio Glowacka with Nisiss

Nissis by Studio Glowacka (c) RIBA London

Studio Glowacka| is a dynamic architecture and design practice founded in 2011 by Agnieszka Glowacka. Studio Glowacka create projects that make the most of any given situation and that highlight the most interesting, exciting or beautiful things about their context. The work is materially rich, meticulously crafted and inventive.

Inspired by the theme of 'play your style' and intricate rope-climbing structures in children's playgrounds, Studio Glowacka has created a modular display structure within which the Nisiss| Clothes and accessories are playfully suspended. The complex, reconfigurable structure is formed from five varying lengths of clear plastic tube. Plywood tube end pieces are held in place using tensioned hemp rope and each tube is attached to the next using slender cable ties. The contrast of precise, perfect plastic and shaggy hemp is similar to the playful details in some Nisiss clothing, where luxury fabric is purposefully left frayed at the edges to create contrasting detail.
