Denmark – Artist Thomas Demand is known for building elaborate paper models, which he then photographs. Now, fabric company Kvadrat has given the artist an opportunity to translate his artwork into architecture with the help of Caruso St John Architects.
Located at the company’s headquarters in Ebeltoft, the Triple Folly pavilion is a large-scale building made of three volumes that resemble a paper plate, a sheet of notepaper and a paper hat. The company gave Demand complete creative control to design whatever he wanted. ‘I tried to design every element in the building and was not stopped by Kvadrat,’ says Demand. The building will be a venue for hospitality events and conferences.
By working with Thomas Demand, an acclaimed contemporary artist, Kvadrat is elevating its corporate spaces into a tourist destination, something that we previously explored in Open-door HQs.
