Architecture firm IBI approached us for an installation in their new Downtown Los Angeles office. After working with them on possible designs and materials to best represent their objective, we decided to use one of their designs that was generated using the computer software Grasshopper.
MIA translated that design into a multi-layered, multi-colored relief cut-out set against an orange background in IBI’s lobby. The chosen material was white expanded foam PVC due to its color and material density.
This piece was made on 1/2″ expanded foam PVC which is solid and whit throughout. The design called for suspending the panels 4 inches above an orange wall. Also the core of the material was to be painted orange where the material was cut.
