    Description

    “LANDED” Inspiration The simulation of the gradual change of a city`s scale, as we understand it during landing, with the prospect of synthesis which leads to the same vanishing point, dynamically links the urban scale with the micro object. The form includes a static part, which stems from its relationship with the ground, while engages in dialogue with its weightless-aerodynamic nature. The use of concrete with exposed aggregate depicts recycling through the reuse of material, while borrows the texture of a city`s view from above, where buildings appear as dots. Here is a group of sculptures of seats which can be installed either as a whole or individually.

    Structural design: John Marneris and partners
