Rotunda Serotina makes its debut in London
First exhibited as part of the Wallpaper* Handmade 2015 in Milan, we made the towering structure of food plates as a collaborative project with the American Hardwood Export Council and designers Kolman Boye. Made from American Cherry, the three storeys of shelves are arranged in a cylindrical shape so that a single ladder can slide around inside the structure to scale every shelf and collect the limited edition snack trays which are given to visitors.
As part of the talks programme for the show, our own Sean Sutcliffe will join Victor Boye Julebäk and Erik Kolman Janouch from Kolman Boye along with David Venables from AHEC. Chaired by Ellie Stathaki (Architecture Editor, Wallpaper*) they will discuss the Scandinavian wood tradition, the phenomenological qualities of the American cherry and maple as well as the ground breaking Life Cycle Assessment they used to create the Rotunda Serotina.
The talk will be followed by a Swedish-style Fika, where coffee and Swedish pastries will be served.
Date: 27 January 2016
Time: talk 3pm, Fika from 3.40pm
Place: Architect@Work, Olympia National
