Paul Cocksedge Studio weaves nylon auditorium

  • Comment

[FIRST LOOK + PLANS + DATA] Paul Cocksedge Studio has revealed new photographs and plans of his ‘woven’ auditorium for trade show 100% Design

Erected for the 100% Design Show at Earls Court during the London Design Festival in September, the event space was created from a ‘precisely calculated woven pattern of nylon wire’.

Structural integrity is achieved, through the deployment of tension throughout the piece: from the solid weight needed in the base, through the weave itself, and up to the perimeter wire that pins it to the hall’s ceiling.

Paul Cocksedge explains: ‘The Auditorium has given me a chance to work with things that on the surface seem mutually exclusive: open/shut, inside/outside, solid/transparent… The partition marks the auditorium’s border, but what defines that border is that you can see and hear and even reach through it…’
