Getting creative with
our studio walls
Coming up with a brief
Like on any client project, we started by brainstorming ideas. From these sessions two interesting concepts emerged: topography and fluids.
Next, we did some research to see how other artists had worked with these concepts. It was a very inspiring process that concluded with a clear brief; to combine the organic shapes of a fluid with the sense of volume of a topographic map.
Starting from an
The process of defining the look and feel of the artwork started with sketches on paper. This enabled us to quicky iterate until we were happy with the style and complexity of the shapes.
Once the look and feel was set, we created vector line illustrations of the three compositions. In order to add a third dimension to the panels, the fluid-shaped lines were distributed in six different layers in order to have variation on the heights within the same panel.
To actually make the pieces we partnered with our friends at Nodo Architecture, they advised us on the best materials and techniques to make our vision a reality.
We provided Nodo with 3D models of the final artwork. Each one was split into 6 layers that when mounted on the right order would give the desired topographic feel to the fluid shapes.
Nodo went through a laborious yet fascinating process to fabricate the artwork. The pieces where cut out of wood conglomerate, assembled, polished and spray-painted in mat white to make them blend in just about right with our studio walls.
The final pieces
We were stunned to see the final results finally hanging on our studio walls. Although based on the same motif each of the three pieces feels unique in its own way, allowing us to get lost in their details and discover new facets every time we look at them.
