influenced by the rich history of clerkenwell, jestico + whiles‘ installation is a sculptural homage to george eastman’s kodak factory which was situated in the area in the late 19th century. a study on aperture and light, the installation is made from krion™, a material warm to the touch that resembles natural stone and consists of two-thirds natural minerals and a low percentage of high-resistance resins. aperture signifies the first time the architecture and interiors practice participates at clerkenwell design week since they moved into their new offices in the area last year.
