Eley Kishimoto’s Oversized World

June 23, 2008


Remember in Alice and Wonderland when she gets really small after eating a magic mushroom? Well, things got similarly psychedelic in London over the weekend at the 2008 Festival of Architecture, where designers of British label Eley Kishimoto outfitted the fountain court at Somerset House in an experimental over-sized living room set. With design group Studio Weave, Eley Kishimoto helped create an outdoor room of tables, chairs, and lamps out of pink geometric patterned plywood. The instillation gives people a reason to enjoy public space, to feel at home in it, and maybe even take a snooze, which is probably what Alice would have done after all those pretty color traces subsided. Check the process photos after the jump.
