Order nominated for award!
Creative build specialists Aldworth James & Bond worked with Corian® to create ‘Order’, an installation at St John’s Gate for Clerkenwell Design Week 2017. Using the octagonal form inspired by the Cross of St John, the structure celebrated the arch as a gateway to the design festival, and its design is firmly rooted in the rich history of Clerkenwell.
‘Order’ pushed the boundaries of component based digital fabrication by forming 145 700mm Corian® octagons that connect together in nine sections, forming a unique multidimensional structure. It measured almost three metres in height, and over five metres in length. The material’s strength is integral to ‘Order’, truly showcased the versatility and benefits of using Corian®as a structural element in manufacture.
Applelec lighting was used as an instrument to connect ‘Order’ to the archway by creating a pattern of light and shadow flowing from its octagonal construction.
