Famous design studio Daewha Kang designed a floating pavilion as part of the art exhibition ‘Odyssee’ on the Möhnesee Lake in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, that’s been organized by the Kunstverein Arnsberg Museum. The piece is amazing and now we’ll show you all the details.
London based studio Daewha Kang imagined and produced this amazing piece of artwork that is built entirely with 278 identical pieces of wood that! This amazing piece was the biggest highlight of this local exhibition that featured twenty-four artists who were asked to make pieces on the lake, under the water, or at the lakeside.
The theme of transformation takes shape through the movement of 278 identical pieces of spruce that turn and shift to create forms that are alternately organic and platonic. the reflection in the water completes the shapes, creating a diamond from one elevation, a circle from the other, and something creature-like in between.
Daewha Kang’s simple construction method of shifting, rotating, and fixing 8-foot standard spruce 2×4’s meant that the structure could be built by local workers. The alternating rhythm creates a surprising range of qualities, from the appearance of a solid disc when seen straight on, to an ethereal and transparent screenwork from the side.
The parametric design was central to the conception and realization of this exhibition theme, the famous story “The Odyssey”, by famous Ancient Greece Author Homero. This piece is so good it ultimately creates a sense of wonder, mystery, and joy to everyone who witnesses it.
