A new installation of ‘Portrait‘ is located on the river terrace of somerset house, which was commissioned for London design festival 08, has been created by designers Fredrikson Stallard.

The installation imitates a plank of wood but is made from corten steel, and has been magnified and transformed using a combination of steel and light to recreate the familiar grain structure of wood.

Message from Veuve Clicquot -

In daylight steel sections representing the light wood grain laid down by the tree in summer are the dominant feature. At night the spaces in between, representing the dark wood grain laid down in winter, will glow in Veuve Clicquot’s signature yellow, as the steel becomes the negative space.
