LIKEarchitects' Christmas installation, Frozen Trees, has found a new home in London's Victory Park in East Village. Originally created by LIKEarchitects in 2011 and displayed on Lisbon's D. Pedro IV Square, the installation will now light up the holiday period in one of London's newest public spaces, on the site of the former Olympic Village, as its 1,296 Rationell Variera plastic bag dispensers from IKEA gently glow through the night.

Taking advantage of the multiple holes and translucent plastic in the low-cost IKEA component, the "trees" are lit from inside by LEDs to create a festive crystalline glow, forming an other-worldly landscape made from the most humble of components. Frozen Trees will be on display in Victory Park until January 15th.
