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 and design of the Business Lounge | new Terminal B - Domestic Flights






Sheremetyevo Airport


The architect's concept for this terminal is the constructivism movement. Constructivism was an artistic and architectural philosophy that originated in Russia in 1913 by Vladimir Tatlin. This was a rejection of the idea of autonomous art. He wanted to 'construct' art. This movement with famous artists such as Vladimir Tatlin and Kazimir Severinovich Malevich has influenced the whole world.

Constructivism was the beginning of a completely new period, in which architecture was created based on steel and concrete. Steel, combined with the development of elevators, allowed the architects to create taller buildings. The design of the lounge is inspired by constructivism; M+R used the beautifully designed onion domes as eye-catchers in the lounge, to create different spaces in the lounge as a certain type of zoning. “The round domes allowed us to create a comfortable space with different zones for a total capacity of 460 seats.”

The seating area has different types of seating for dining; to work; lounging and relaxation. The onion dome is an example of the first constructive development and played an important role in architecture. The placement of the chairs is such that each chair has its own space, subtle, comfortable but spacious.
