LiquidKristal Pavilion by Ross Lovegrove for Lasvit

August 29th, 2012 by retail design blog

In typical Ross Lovegrove fashion – combining aspects of sculpture, art, architecture, light and material science – the London-based designer created his latest installation. After a year of experimentation and conceptualization, the LiquidKristal Pavilion was introduced at the Salone del Mobile in April. Spanning 60-sq-m, the piece was divided into three sections; in total, they comprised of 24 self-supporting glass laminations made of Lasvit’s glass-like product.

Together the encompassing and undulating structures formed a new moulding system that can be employed in various areas to create a sense of architecture. LiquidKristal walls acted as structural elements resting below the roof, which doubled as a screen onto which digital art was projected.

The glass walls appeared to be a hybrid form, capturing simultaneously the expressive essences of both liquids and solids. Lovegrove says the concept can be used in domestic interiors, retail spaces, offices, outdoor spaces and as architectural curtain wall systems.
