At this fall’s London Design Festival, which took place Sept. 17–Oct. 16 and hosted more than 250 events, Sefar® Architecture, Thal, Switzerland, partnered with London-based David Chipperfield Architects and ARUP to create Two Lines, a temporary installation at Southbank Centre Square, located on the south side of the Thames. The composition is a dialogue between two identical forms, different only in orientation and metallic finish; each form consists of a series of unframed glass panels with a translucent, metal-coated Sefar Architecture Vision fabric interlayer and corresponding colored stainless steel connections. The installation appears at times opaque and dynamically translucent, changing over the course of the day.
The London Design Festival, now in its ninth year, celebrates London as “the creative capital of the world.” Sefar’s Vision fabric contributed to one of the five main attractions of the festival, “Size + Matter,” which created unique installations by teaming a leading designer or architect with a unique material or process.
