80 sheets of mountains

An installation created for the entrance hall for the main exhibition space at the Stockholm International Furniture Fair 2013, at which we were honored to be the Guest of Honor. We laser-cut and stretched 80 sheets of 5mm polystyrene into a set of partitions shaped like mountains, and arranged them to create a landscape of snow-capped mountain ranges in the space. It expresses the way design expands, starting from a single small idea- a method at the basis of our design philosophy. We also wanted to minimize the exhibition’s environmental impact. We stretched the polystyrene sheets on site so that the delivery only needed one truck, and the sheets could be flattened for clearing from the site and recycled.
