As part of ongoing experimental work our studio has been developing a concept system entitled ‘Aurora’ which investigates the component make-up within 3-dimensional structures, focusing on the relationship between structure and an object’s ‘internal skin’.
As a studio we continue to develop new surface and sculptural typologies, and with every iteration comes a deeper understanding of the visual and material effects we are able to generate using reflection and the manipulation of light.
For this dry-assembly installation, almost 2000 mirror-finish stainless steel ‘pennies’ have been suspended within a structural lattice made from grey valchromat and composed to create variation of both reflective direction as well as visual permeability. The effect is an investigation into surface sculpture and the simple beauty of materials.
Launching at the Northern Design Festival, Aurora will then return to our studio to contribute to further material experimentation.
