345 RGB


345 RGB 'response to a theme on fundamentals' This installation, created as part of the Global Arts Affairs Foundation Exhibition in conjunction with Venice Architectural Biennale 2014, intends to make a landscape composed of fundamental elements. Using basic forms, geometry, color and unit configuration, we challenged ourselves to find complexity and less inherent rhythms. The installation is an assemblage of trapezoidal, multi-faceted planes. Movable triangular panels change form and kaleidoscope-like color, daily and seasonally.

About MANIFOLD design

MANIFOLD Design was established by Karen Lemmert and David Naill as a collaborative practice engaged in the development of conceptual work within the physical landscape. We are committed to fostering new sustainable growth within the existing environment and embracing the challenge of incorporating new investigations into the built landscape to both preserve cultural history and propagate new potential. Our intention is to explore and develop, both academically and in design practice, the relationship of physical materials and properties to conceptual constructions. We believe this dialog takes place within organized fields of energy that can be utilized by alignment with tectonic constructions, manifolds of distillations and dispersal.
