Thomas Heatherwick March 6, 2007
Thomas Heatherwick is an amazing artist and architect. He has some of the most innovative stuff I seen in a long, long time.
WIRED has a nice article on him:
To create this outdoor sculpture at the Wellcome Trust in London, Heatherwick first made a 2-inch-long blob by pouring molten metal into water.
The three-story staircase, made from 55 tons of hot-rolled steel, arrived at Longchamp’s new SoHo boutique prebuilt, ready for installation. Acrylic-like PETG (polyethylene terephthalate glycol) panels based on aerospace windshields hang from the handrails.
