Re-imagined homes by top designers appear in Trafalgar Square

  • Comment

Installations by Jasper Morrison, Patternity, Raw Edges and Studioilse have opened in London’s Trafalgar Square as part of London Design Festival 2014

The four installations form a project entitled ‘A Place Called Home’ which challenged the designers to create their own interpretations of home.

Although each of the installations looks similar from the exterior, the designers shaped the interiors to show vastly different interpretations of a room.

London-based design studio Raw Edges created a space that could transform into a number of different rooms using partitions and moveable walls, taking a moveable archive system as their inspiration.

Jasper Morrison created a pigeon fancier’s house as, according to him: ‘Who else would choose to live in the middle of Trafalgar Square?’ The work had external perches and roosting boxes on the exterior, with bird-watching paraphernalia in the interior.

The installation by Studioilse comprises an audio-visual installation where visitors will hear a soundtrack of background noises commonly heard in the home alongside film projections of images of household objects and rituals.

Patternity fitted their installation with three kaleidoscopes that reflect their surroundings with repeated patterns.
