Overview

The original design of this Kunming Office Building was relatively conventional. In order to infuse this place with an artistic taste, the designers added several unique art installations to provoke people’s emotions. All of them have turned this ordinary commercial space into a place full of unique personalities.

As this building is located in Kunming, Yunnan province. One of the most famous natural sights in Yunnan is the ‘Stone Forest’, which is a notable set of limestone formations. You may see the concept of Yunnan Stone Forest connected throughout the entire area, including this Mountain Range Art Installation at the office building lobby entrance. Decorative green rectangular planes are arranged in various angles. These V-shaped polylines remind people of the outline of the mountain range. This eye-catching installation also serves as a signaling agent. Guests could immediately spot the entrance of the office building from afar, which distinguishes itself from the other residential buildings.

Goals

Client wanted us to create a series of sculptures to elevate the artistic vibe. We suggested adding a pavilion for people’s gatherings, e.g. mini concerts, band shows. An art piece that is ‘functional’ is better than just a sculpture. People like staying here after it’s built.
