About the event

Following their huge popularity in Coal Drops Yard last winter, Studio Mieke Meijer’s Space Frames has return to King’s Cross, this time lighting up Granary Square with a playful installation.

The Space Frames respond to the timeless beauty of the rigorous and functional industrial architecture that surrounds them, including the adjacent Granary Building and nearby Coal Drops Yard. In fact, they trace and mimic the graphic outlines of Coal Drops Yard’s arches and industrial structures.

The dynamic installation encourages people to interact with it through its placement and use of seating. The Space Frames also act as landmarks and beacons, drawing visitors towards and beneath them.

Studio Mieke Meijer has been making domestic versions of the Space Lamps in their workshop for some time, but for this, Meijer wanted to supersize their sculptures to create a visually stunning piece that emphasises the space they inhabit.
