Client: Great Western Studios
Sector: Exhibitions & Events
As part of PearsonLloyd’s exhibition 1:1, the design studio transformed the foyer of Great Western Studios’ exhibition space with an installation of 20 three-metre-long plywood boxes. The composition was re-configured routinely throughout the event, demonstrating how furniture can be used to choreograph behaviour and manipulate space; ideas at the core of PearsonLloyd’s practice.
Measuring 40cm high, the boxes are versatile and their purpose can be altered based on the configuration: individual units are perfect for sitting; two stacked boxes become perch height; and lean height when trebled. By building and stacking the boxes into premeditated configurations, the studio constructed areas that lend themselves to different behaviours – be it chatting in a group, taking a private phone call, or simply observing the surrounding space.
The installation was part of an exhibition that provided insights to the processes behind PearsonLloyd’s work.
PearsonLloyd 1:1 Inside Design was part of the 2013 London Design Festival.
