Flagship is a simple yet powerful approach to the ideas of weightlessness and transparency, as a physical condition and as well as a cultural experience. Inspired by the golden era of sailing ships, the concept was materialized by using 240 flags made from Sunbrella´s fine marine fabric combined with a transparent glass structure. In addition to lighting and color effects, the spatial rhythm created by the flags and glass offers strong perspective views throughout the building. The flags enable a clear view of the surroundings at the bottom, with a vertical progression that provides a necessary protection from the elements. The lower strips also allow sitting /lounging around the building’s facades. Thus, Sunbrella’s Marine 60’’ Natural was selected due to its tensile properties, resistance to the elements and shading qualities.
