mar.s architects: The term "foyer" originally referred to a hearth space. Nowadays, it denotes a social hall used for refreshment and relaxation during breaks. The foyer remains true to its original meaning and is enhanced with relaxation workspaces for short and long-term tasks. The space serves as a showroom for the Marslab store concept, while also functioning as a coworking hub, occasional event spot, or photography studio. This multifunctional space combines industrial style, deep design, and a calm atmosphere for focused work in a coworking environment.

The genius loci of the place, along with selected products, creates an inspiring and functional environment not only for design enthusiasts. Each corner has its own purpose, whether it is for product presentations, creative coworking meetings, or organizing unforgettable events. In the foyer, you can present your products and projects in a way that highlights their uniqueness and quality. The space is designed to create a creative backdrop and leave an unforgettable impression on its users. The dual function of the space communicates and complements each other very well. At the same time, you can use the coworking hub for effective business meetings and collaboration with other creative individuals surrounded by contemporary Czech and international design.

Last but not least, the Foyer project also forms a showroom concept store, Marslab, which blends objects from local designers and artists with products from smaller European furniture manufacturers. This Foyer-Showroom emphasizes the curation of products selected from the Marslab portfolio. The jewel of this space is a light fixture by Jiří Krejčiřík, suspended above a table by Viccarbe surrounded by comfortable chairs from the long-standing Italian manufacturer Arrmet. In the meeting room, chairs from the Arrmet Kiyumi collection take center stage, along with an atypical light fixture by Jaroslav Chramosta. The entrée features an installation with soft seating, led by a sideboard and coffee tables from nozomi.furniture, a comfortable sofa, and an armchair from Comforty. As the foyer brings together art lovers, the space is interwoven with artistic objects from Kombo studio, paintings by Patrik Kriššák, and Maxima Havlíček. This project focuses on maximum harmony between aesthetics and functionality, aiming to create a space full of personality and quality.
