TAKE THE PLUNGE LONDON DESIGN FESTIVAL
Location: Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf
The interactive project shows the power of design to evoke curiosity, in a stand-alone immersive experience created for London Design Festival. Visitors were invited on a journey of discovery and asked to dive into a new experience, to Take the Plunge.
The concept was inspired by a love of the sea; the great unknown with the promise of epic discoveries.
Take the Plunge hints at this spirit of adventure and celebrates the endless possibilities of great design, using multi-sensory techniques to capture the joyful elements of an oceanic journey. The minimalist exterior juxtaposes with the warmth that awaits within. Visitors step into an endless horizon, giving way to an extraordinary secondary space that depicts a sunset under the sea.
The installation was created using components which supported the circular economy and / or were low-toxicity and low-energy. All materials were recyclable or reusable including over 1000 cardboard tubes which we are currently developing into sculptures (coming soon).
