London Design Festival 2015 – Viennese studio mischer’traxler’s Curiosity Cloud celebrates nature’s surprising moments with a captivating installation.
The installation comprises 250 hand-blown glass bulbs, each containing a model insect attached to a string and motor. As the viewer approaches, motion sensors trigger the mechanism, causing the insects to ‘come alive’ and emit an intense buzzing noise.
‘Curiosity Cloud is celebrating a moment in nature, capturing our magical fascination with insects, while creating an engaging atmosphere,’ the designers tell LS:N Global.
The Big Picture: Curiosity Cloud examines the relationship between mankind and the earth, reflecting the trend for Whole-system Thinking. Keep an eye on LS:N Global’s Seed and Shows section for more stand-out exhibitions and installations from London Design Festival 2015 over the coming weeks.
