NOTE: 

Creating a sense of ‘incompleteness’ –was the key to our design.

In my mind clothes are associated with warmth of human body-sometimes that feeling gets too intense and uncomfortably hot. This is why I want to make the background as calm as possible. We intend to leave this space somewhat incomplete-and when clothes are set in place it will be complete. So our construction process was mostly ‘subtraction’-that is, dismantling, peeling, and scraping unnecessary layers-except for a few ‘additional’ elements.
