Weather With You
Olafur Eliasson

Currently inspiring the Designworks Auckland studio: The startling experiential installations of Olafur Eliasson.

We adore this Copenhagen native’s work because of the way it brings the outside in, injects fun into a possibly dull space and the inside out. His monograph, Take Your Time, is well worth looking through. Inside you’ll find 200+ photographs of his clever constructions – using light, space and materials like mirrored, glass, water and wood.

The Weather Project in particular sparks our imagination. Shown at the TATE, Eliasson combined hundreds of mono-frequency lamps in a semicircle, mirrored to produce a radiant sun.
