Amanda Levete creates a lounge based on a drop of water
The concept of Amanda Levete Architects’ space is based on the pattern of ripples created when a raindrop hits the surface of water.
Made from Corian sheets, the undulating strips rise from the floor to generate seating, shelves and walls of the Corian Super-surfaces exhibition at the Milan Furniture Show. LED backlighting is integrated behind some strips to emphasise the sculptural forms and the alter perceptions of the space as the viewer moves around the lounge.
In 2008, Amanda Levete designed furniture to be used in the corners of a room for Established & Sons. Amanda Levete Architects are working with artist Anish Kapoor on the Naples subway and recently revealed the design for a retail and hotel complex in Bangkok, Thailand.
