Architen Landrell were approached to assist the clients in an exciting, unique project for a temporary fabric wall lining for an exhibition space in London.
In order for a six-week sculpture and sketch exhibition to take place at the Hauser and Wirth Colnaghi Gallery, one of the rooms required dressing. Working alongside Zaha Hadid Architects, Architen Landrell were brought in to design, manufacture and install a series of 4m high white stretch fabric panels to cover the edges of the room and create a crisp, clean feel to the space.
Using a similar method to that used at the Chanel Pavillion, stretch fabric was ideal for this situation as it is semi-translucent allowing some light through to the sculptures but could be tensioned over a solid frame to create a curved surface. In addition, it gave us the option to allow the room to be lit appropriately for the exhibition.
In total we fabricated and installed 16 fabric panels and, along with the client are delighted with the final product.
