Cyril Lancelin, founder of the French studio Town and Concrete, has conceived the Knot, an installation based on a knitting node, the trefoil knot, a primitive form on which the design of the 3-dimensional structure is modeled.
The trefoil can be obtained by joining together the two ends of a common overhand knot, resulting in a knotted loop. Several nodes have been juxtaposed, and a continuous and closed line connects them.
With this immersive installation Town and Concrete makes it possible to explore different spaces separated by unusual separating boundaries. The pink color very present will allow the work to be detached from its environment. Its general volume is very easily identifiable by the presence of this colored mass.
Through this architectural experience, we learn about alternatives to simple partitions to delimit several spaces. This installation could be both the partition and the structure of a building. The variety of node loops allows the installation to have a variety of explorations. The experience is inside but also outside, and especially from all angles.
