It is intended that access to that space and the search for valuable object becomes a magical and exciting journey across the threshold of mysterious jeweler. It's not about buying jewelry ... on one hand access to a ceremony: the ritual of finding a little treasure unknown (there are resonances plays, some treatments of the dome reminiscent of the dark curtains, lighting and set designer ).
Geometry: the box is formed by twin opposing two extruded sections, the upper dark, matte, light and vibrant interior and silver, shiny, heavy and rigid.
The dark is generated by an asymmetric inverted U, which generates a way to vault a section extruded, thus forming the roof and sides (asymmetric): presents a reading of drapery-curtain mysteriously folded.
The other dihedral forms- the floor and furniture behind the counter lateral central, forming an L lying, is generated as a folded surface wear, bright and deep.
