the right kind of wrong

.jpg a couple of weeks ago i helped out designers michael marriott and anthony burrill with their exhibition 'the right kind of wrong', which was designed for the mother advertising agency in london. seeing it from the beginning in its component parts, putting together the veneered boards and wooden beams to create the tower was a great experience. the final outcome was really cool, and the opening night a couple of weeks ago was packed! if you can get along and see it, i recommend you do!

[from dezeen] from michael and anthony:

The Right Kind of Wrong consists primarily of a structure, which is a kind of a vehicle to show off Anthony’s artwork in a three dimensional fashion.

it proved important to incorporate the artwork within the structure rather than simply applying it to something, hence the idea of laser cutting Anthony’s drawings in different veneered boards, which form a structural skin for the framework.

The nature of the space also determined that it should be quite a tall thing and definitely free standing.

The outcome is a vehicle that is in equal parts: chalet, hoarding, boat, meeting room, hot rod, shack, café seating, cabin, billboard, chariot, oasis, trojan horse, look out tower, home and away.
