The Cloud Installation

Every year Buenos Aires, Argentina holds the Casa FOA Arch. And Design show, a space that allows designers, architects, decorators and landscapers to present their creations and findings. In the year of 2014 Casa FOA displayed the design of Bea and Mecha Palacio, “The Cloud”.

Using materials that were destined to be discarded, the duo has created a design that allows one to drift in an illusion. Elements used, such as light, allow for a more engaging atmosphere. “The Cloud” installation is made out of pipe shaped Polyurethane foam; after many processes of cutting, measuring, assembling and painting, the undulating installation hangs above the wooden stairs.

Each module has a special measurement and location organized in order to create a lightweight undulating surface. Inspired by concepts of light and delicacy, the installation creates a very sensational atmosphere. An addition of a mirror gives this beautiful installation the illusion of being infinite.
