The Pleat Garden appropriates pleats and origami folding techniques to develop a set of flower inspired geometries that gently float inside the showroom, creating an abstract garden. The garden reacts to changes in the environment, hovering with the wind and diffusing the light as it passes through the intricate pleat patterns.
Complementing the VitrA Voyage colour palette, the pleated flowers offer a dual reading, creating a delicate balance between both sides of the showroom.
This installation was made for VitrA as part of the Showroom Showcase. This year’s London Festival of Architecture sees some of London’s most respected design brands offering up the windows of their showrooms to showcase the work of London’s best emerging architects and designers. The London Festival of Architecture invited emerging architects and designers to create unique architectural installations made of paper, to be installed in those showrooms across London throughout the LFA public events programme in June.
