For the recently opened Coal Drops Yard shopping centre by Heaterwick Studio in King's Cross, London, Studio Mieke Meijer designed a festive light installation.
The giant light sculptures, Space Frames, are placed in and around Coal Drops Yard drawing visitors towards and beneath them.
They act as landmarks, visible across the land-scape of Coal Drops Yard and Granary Square and beyond.
The Space Frames respond to the architecture of their location; tracing the arches and mimicking the graphic outlines of Coal Drops Yard’s industrial structure.
