For the second year in a row, Hakwood is participating in Clerkenwell Design Week. This time, Hakwood sponsors Double Vision, a four metre high structural installation of recursive patterns, nestled within the historic Clerkenwell Close.
Inspired by the pattern possibilities of Hakwood’s wall tile range, Double Vision is a double-panelled structure that aimed to create an uplifting moment while walking the CDW exhibition route. One vision represents the calm and natural wood tones Hakwood offers, while the other shows a bold statement of contrasting bright colours. By combining these visions using rotating tiles in the middle, a third vision appears. The piece celebrates pattern and form and its powers to brighten and energize. It reflects the concept of Hakwood Wall Tiles for which each designer can make their own design statement based upon their unique vision.
The immersive patterned landscape comprises of Hakwood’s iconic wood Wall Tiles that can be rearranged and rotated to create a space that invites guests to explore, play, and connect with pattern in a direct and physical way. The design of the installation toys whimsically with scale to create an almost infinite tunnel effect, reflecting the endless possibilities of working with the wall tile range and responding directly to the tunnel-like form of Clerkenwell Close itself.
Clerkenwell Design Week runs from the 23rd – 25th of May 2017, and showcases the leading UK and international creative brands and companies presented in a series of showroom events, exhibitions and installations.
