‘sitooterie II’ is a light installation by heatherwick studio commissioned by the national malus collection located in essex, UK. the structure takes its name from the scottish term ‘sitooterie’ which is a small building for sitting out. heatherwick studio re-imagines the ‘sitooterie’ as a cube punctured by 5,000 long windows which emit light. the project is made from anodized aluminum and the windows are tubes glazed with a transparent orange acrylic. inside the central cube one light source illuminates all the windows. a few of the tubes provide seating.
