Screen printed enamelled inks on toughened laminated glass
Main entrance lobby @Loudoun Square, Butetown, Cardiff, 2012
Commissioned by Loudoun Square Partnership
Fold is a glass design created for the main lobby entrance of the building @Loudoun Square. The design is inspired by the folded bellows of a large format plate camera and makes reference to the medium of photography and film.
We wanted to give a visual hint to some of the creative activity that is happening within @Loudoun Square such as the Culture and Media Centre and also suggest a sense of movement and flexibility within the design.
The final artwork has been screen-printed onto glass panels using blue enamel inks, which has been toughened and laminated. The designs were developed in consultation with the architects Austin-Smith: Lord LLP and art-glass specialists Proto Studios.
