Copper in MotionDesign | 11 May 2017
A piece specifically designed to the lobby of EMC2 Hotel, in Chicago, United States of America. With the design of Larose Guyon studio, requested by Rockwell Group, this interactive art work is ‘copper in motion’ and “combines ingenuity, art and science”.
Larose Guyon studio was inspired by zoetrope – an invention of William George Horner and Simon von Stampfer that dates to 1834 and is considered a forerunner to cinema – to create its own animated object. So, 44 copper wings, laser cut, were placed inside a wheel, which can be motioned through a hand crank. This hand crank looks like a lace flower and its wings move in three dimensions, thus creating a captivating image to behold.
