Signed, Sealed, & Delivered

Nikolas posted about this project in Hong Kong when it was being installed back in February. Now that we’ve got final photography I wanted to pop in quickly and share these images of the Artwork we did for Swire Properties’ Arezzo residential tower.

This piece is interesting in the way it integrates with the architecture. It literally peels off from the balcony like a second skin. As it departs it becomes more sculptural and independent—finishing in a technically intricate, three-dimensional knot.

The sculpture builds on Nikolas’ previous ribbon-like pieces, in which each tube had the same curve. In this iteration we introduced a variety of different profiles, which makes the glass more visually alive and allows the tight and complex curves.

Thanks to Michael Weber for the beautiful photos.
