The piece by Karsten Huneck is made from weathered steel, intricately cut into patterns and illuminated with energy-efficient LED lights. The lights were installed by our very own, James Stone and Mark Watkins with the support of Quinton Roberts designed by Hoare Lea lighting engineers.
Karsten’s installation is the first in a series of permanent commissions for the area.
He said: “We wanted to create an artwork that was integrated into the architecture of the site. The entrance and staircase help to create a new public space and the exposed column in the space reminded us of an old Victorian theatre.
“This inspired us to create an intricate ceiling using a traditional Victorian pattern which is lit from above with LED lighting to create a stunning, illuminated piece.”
Stuart Hatton, director at Umberslade, the developer behind Wapping Wharf, added: “I’m thrilled to see the new artwork now unveiled. It’s a striking visual piece that gives the new Wapping Wharf development a sense of individuality and a creative vibe.”
