Numerous small and large art galleries have established themselves in the milieu of the renowned Art Basel Hong Kong fair in the metropolis located on Victoria Harbour. The new f22 foto space presents contemporary photographic art in atmospherically dark rooms—ideally showcased with LED lighting technology from ERCO.
The former lawyer Douglas So, who has been running the F11 Photo Museum in Hong Kong for several years, has created gallery spaces for young photographic art in the form of the new f22 foto space in the Wan Chai district. The two-storey exhibition areas are complemented by a photo book store ("libro 22"), a Leica camera boutique ("camera 22") and a café ("café 22"). Like the name f22, the elaborate interior design of the gallery is also inspired by camera elements such as apertures and lenses. The project has already been distinguished with the IF Design Award, the Red Dot Design Award and the Golden Pin Award. The designers and engineers at LAAB architects + Carlow Architecture & Design play with the contrasts of black and white as well as light and shadow in their interior design concept to match the theme of photography—and place their trust in ERCO's many years of experience in the museum and gallery sector for perceptual lighting.
