Constructivism is an artistic and architectural philosophy that originated in Russia in 1915 by Vladimir Tatlin and Alexander Rodchenko. Abstract and sober, constructivist art aimed at reflecting modern industrial society and urban space. The movement rejected decorative styling in favor of the industrial assembly of materials. Constructivists advocated art for practical and social purposes and were associated with Soviet socialism and the Russian avant-garde. Constructivist architecture and art had a major effect on modern art movements of the 20th century, influencing major trends such as the Bauhaus and 'De Stijl' movements. Its influence was widespread, with major implications for architecture, sculpture, graphic design, industrial design, theatre, film, dance, fashion and to some extent music.

Concept designs of the Malevich Business Lounge | Terminal C - International Flights






Sheremetyevo Airport


M+R has now secured a firm place on Sheremetyevo Airport's shortlist for international design agencies. After the realization of the award-winning Rublev business Lounge and the Viplounge in 2018, our agency was asked to participate in the competitions for the expansion of the C-terminal. M+R was selected from a number of agencies to design two business lounges: Malevich and Chagall.

The Malevich business lounge has a total area of approximately 3,250 m2, making it the largest business lounge in Europe and the third largest in the world. The lounge is located at the end of the departure pier, a round building with 3 floors. The lounge is equipped with bedrooms, among other things; work rooms; a fitness studio; two bars and a restaurant with food line; meeting rooms; a play area for children, a small cinema; Toilets; shower rooms and offers a total of more than 650 seats for travelers.
On the advice and design of M+R, the lounge has been made completely round with a bridge connection above the passenger pier. The lounge is visible from this level through an impressive LED screen that is clearly visible due to its size at the start of the pier. The design of the lounge is based on the geometric interplay of lines by the artist Malevich, where all the sight lines direct towards the taxi platform of the aircraft. The direction is reinforced by ceiling parts and special lighting: 'floor plan as a painting'. Around the lounge there is a breathtaking view of the airside platform, where comfortable chairs and 'chaisse lounges' are positioned. Due to the division into segments, the lounge has an intimate character and there are different zones for the passengers; for relaxing; to eat; drinks; work, etc. Here too, all the seats are arranged on raised floors, the visitor is central: 'on stage' with intimacy, overview and comfort. The wall finish with wooden accents and lighting enhance the interplay of lines in the lounge. Special walls have been created in the toilets with reliefs of geometric triangles in different designs.
