Mirare Maze Folly by Mobile Studio

Mobile Studio has created an installation close to the Order of St John in Clerkenwell based on a playful adaptation of the garden maze

Transparent acrylic walls create the maze, while the tessellated structure allows the individual components to be separated and reconfigured into new designs.

The installation was designed by Cheekit Lai, architect at Mobile Studio, who said: ‘We didn’t want to make something that was too rooted in historical Clerkenwell; we wanted to make something that was more fun and interactive. We liked the idea of the garden maze as a type of folly, but wanted to do something more contemporary.’

He added: ‘The choice of colours and shapes is personal. My mother used to make patchwork quilts, which used similar hexagonal shapes and colours.’
