ZMIK designers recently finished ANNA, a design for a wireframe landscape on the walls of the office corridors of iart interactive, a digital design agency in Basel. Depending on the position of the viewer, these black and white line-drawn perspectives magically line up with reality and seem to extend the space beyond the physical walls of the actual corridor.

In ZMIK's words: iart interactive moves their offices to a new place inside a building from the seventies. This spacial intervention in the main circulation area visually enlarges the narrow corridor by using the medium of anamorphosis: looking from 5 fixed positions the wireframe-drawings show real and imaginary rooms behind the walls. Besides this point of view the graphic merges into abstract lines. For iart interactive the intervention is also an allegory for the quest of new perspectives.

Basel based ZMIK designers was founded in 2006 by Rolf Indermühle, Mattias Mohr and Magnus Zwyssig. Grown out of the 'Les Garçons' collective they have realised several projects since 2002 in the field of interior design, exhibition design, architecture and product design. ZMIK explores opportunities at the fringes of these various disciplines and aims to generate precise and individual solutions for complex issues. Their work is focused on the design of identity and individuality as well as the translation of abstract contents into three-dimensional messages (do you remember their ARTSHOP 09 // Temporary Design shop ?). With ANNA, ZMIK brings us a bit of that poetic three-dimensional magic indeed!

    Fascinating. I love it when artist subvert, juxtapose and alter our perception of 'depth of field'. Very clever and brilliantly executed.

    this changes as you walk round it? can we have a video, pls? that's a nasty floor, it looks like an english municipal baths c.1976. the grid pattern detracts from the wall design. some curves and colour required on the floor.
