Custom-designed by FXFOWLE Architects for the inaugural Miami Project art fair, the FXFOWLE Lounge featured a free-standing architectural pavilion housed within a well-appointed seating and bar area.

The pavilion–which paired technologically-sophisticated scripting software with simple museum board–was comprised of 180 varying segments that, together, took the form of complex structural geometries. The segments were pre-assembled, in-house and by hand, into 18 different ribs – using solely Elmer’s glue and a stock adhesive–and subsequently installed upright and fastened to one another via twist ties. The pavilion structure was thoughtfully complimented by plus beanbag chairs and timeless Prince Aha stool, provided respectively by Fatboy and Kartell. SCRA, an applied technology research corporation, custom-fabricated the lounge’s 20 foot-long carbon fiber bar that FXFOWLE designed in-house, also with the aid of scripting software.
