Designed and constructed by Like Architects for the 2012 Oporto Show, the Chromatic Screen installation is an intervention representative of their ephemeral work that lies on the border between architecture, design, urban installation and art. The installation is designed using about 2,000 hangers for children’s clothes from IKEA – ‘Bagis’ -, in four different colors – blue, green, pink and orange – that merge into multiple tonalities. More images and architects’ description after the break.
Starting from the reinterpretation of a common object of daily use, Chromatic Screen builds a distinct element, spatial organizer, that involves all who visit it into a chromatic experience with different moments of opacity and transparency. Chromatic Screen results in a kinetic, very colorful, experience.
