finnish based design duo aamu song and johan olin of company
were comissioned to create
art work for a residential building in toukoranta, a new housing area in helsinki, finland.
their project kaide-taide (art-handling) bends the railings of the 8 storey building into new shapes,
providing places to sit and lean on as well as opening up new views from the stairwell.
railings are painted in a different tone of grey at each floor, creating a gradient;
the 1st floor being dark grey to the 8th floor being white.
material: 16 mm steel rod frame 33 mm steel tube
a railing seat for two.
something to lean on.
kaide-taide continues outdoors providing sitting places in front of each entrance to the building.
