Universal Everything is a Sheffield based media art and design studio. Their work for Vision Hall Media Wall at Hyundai Motor Group University, Mabuk Campus, in South Korea has been awarded with the Red Dot Design Award in the category of BEST CORPORATE FILM 2013. This footage has been supporting the award application by Universal Everything and has been shot, directed and edited by Nils Clauss.
Vision Hall, which belongs to a human resources development centre of Hyundai Motor Group, was designed for its employees to visually experience the company’s philosophy. The hall uses state-of-the-art technology like a 3D sound system of 36 channels and a media wall (24 x 3.5 metres) to present interactive content of up to 48K resolution spread across 730 micro-tiles. This current multi- media exhibition was organised to stimulate an ongoing dialogue between the company and employees. Vision Hall and the selected artworks are meaningful, as they open up a space of dialogue and reflect on the company’s willingness to communicate.
Underwood International College (UIC) is a highly selective, English-language, four-year liberal arts institution, which combines the intimate, elite learning environment of an American-style liberal arts college with the faculty and resources of Korea’s top private research university. Check out here some of the images Nils Clauss took for UIC and their promotional purposes.
The design started with expressing the brand’s identity. With this in mind, the designer Will Craig (Discursive Form) in collaboration with Seoul based architects and planners Zabel & Partner chose concrete and tiles as the major finishing materials and eliminated vast amounts of decorative elements. The design of this restaurant and bar in Itaewon, Seoul, was finalised in May 2014. Check out some of the images here.
The 19,375-square-foot retail experience, located in the bustling Gangnam shopping district, becomes the largest sport brand store in Korea. Consumers will find the best that Nike has to offer, including Running, Football and Sportswear products. The design of Nike Gangnam embraces local connections while staying true to Nike’s rich heritage. The two-story façade sports an awning with a 26-degree angle, the same geometry that’s seen on Nike’s classic outerwear, the Nike Windrunner. Inside, the store has three levels and a 24-foot chrome chandelier. This stunning centerpiece, made from Nike running, basketball and football products, pays homage to Nike’s innovations.
