Deconstructed is a kinetic sculpture commissioned by Property Markets Group (PMG) for the Sales Center lobby of their new 100-story Waldorf Astoria tower development in Miami, Florida. Hypersonic worked with the design firm Second Story to develop the concept for the PMG team.
55 hand-made quadrilateral polished elements move in disparate hanging rhythms, coming together to form the outline of a 3-dimensional cube. Hanging in the sales-center lobby for this new super-tall skyscraper development in Miami, the sculpture’s form references the series of stacked cube forms that make up architect Carlos Ott’s skyscraper’s design. Conceptually, Deconstructed references the many pieces that come together in different ways and times to create a magical place.
To create a calm and contemplative piece for the lobby of this new building.
Hypersonic worked with the firm Second Story to identify what the client was looking for and guide Hypersonic's design direction. Hypersonic came up with the concept and design. Hypersonic made the piece.
