M2AD is a color-schemed multifunctional space that synergizes with art through design. M2AD exhibition hall designed to illustrates the Mondrian-inspired abstract style with functionality and mobility, from epoxy flooring to relocatable properties for a spacious multi-purpose showroom. Located within a shopping mall in suburban Taichung (Taiwan), this 660-square-foot space consists of four functional units, each with its significant color scheme: the main gallery in red that represents vibrancy and focus; the sub gallery as well a conference room in blue that delivers tranquility; the office area that vitalized with yellow; and the reception area that brings up a sense of unity with its black and white. In addition, all colors are intentionally toned down to dilute strains from chunks of pure colors and also to accentuate exhibition subjects. Special attention was taken to create the phenomenal marble-like sleek bicolor proxy flooring surface in the galleries. In the reception hall floor, the shape of ancient Chinese coin was abstractly formed with a modern touch, referring to good fortune. To meet the requirements of multi-purposed space usage, the galleries feature customized-made moveable show boards that can be allocated on demand, with seats and tables that can be stacked up and put away while not be used, connecting two galleries into one. The result is a classy, simplistic yet dynamic space that can be utilized for any art exhibition or open event.
