Thread Installation by Julian Preiss & Paul la Tourelle

Norwegian architects Julian Preiss & Paul la Tourelle have created an installation using 150,000 mm thread in three colours.

T-MICHAEL and Norwegian Rain shop in Oslo invited Julian Preiss & Paul la Tourelle to make a site specific installation and this is what they came up with!

Three x 50,000 mm elastic thread cones; red, yellow and pink, radiate from a street light outside the shop. The threads converge towards the shop’s glass facade, cascading through it then ‘illuminates’ on the inside of the shop’s window across the glass.
150,000 mm is designed to engage both the private and public space of the shop’s interior and the street outside.

The installation can be viewed at T-MICHAEL Oslo, Kirkegt 20.
