A Gust of Wind, 2010
Designed for the London Design Festival in collaboration with Corian®
Three hundred curvaceous pieces of Corian®, exhibited for one day only, was part of the V&A’s Friday Late Programme. The ‘pages’ represent a stack of paper that has been blown into the air by a gust of wind. Each of these limited edition pieces has been engraved and then handmade into a unique series by Paul Cocksedge.
Paul Cocksedge adds: ‘With this installation I wanted to challenge the perception we often have that robust materials must create robust designs. Instead, we’ve ended up creating a very light and dreamy piece'.
