Neri to capture the company's rich history and mission of today – “To advance the way we live and work.” With the company's design focus of the new headquarters to invigorate its culture and create an innovative, collaborative and comfortable environment, Wiedmann's sculpture sets the tone upon entering the building with his inspiration.

Goals

Wiedmann worked closely with HPE's CEO Antonio F. Neri to capture the company's rich history and mission of today - "To advance the way we live and work." With the company's design focus of the new headquarters to invigorate its culture and create an innovative, collaborative and comfortable environment, Wiedmann's sculpture sets the tone upon entering the building with his inspiration.

The piece is composed of three abstract stainless steel sculptural elements rising like flower steams from a pool of calm water. Their lines, and closed forms, are organic and delicate as they embrace one another. The elements play within the negative space and the water's gentle reflections.

"Adam's work brings a harmony and sense of innovation to the new headquarters," said Neri, who took an active role in the design of the company's new headquarters and personally commissioned the work. 'Elysium' helps remind our employees, partners and customers who pass it each day of HPE's mission and vision for the future.” See full press release here- https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/newest-wiedmann-original-sculpture-unveiled-at-hewlett-packard-enterprise-headquarters-300841423.html
