About This Project

Medium:
recycled mild steel

Dimensions:
12' H x 8' W x 8' D

Date:
2010

Commissioned by:
Merlone Geier Partners

Location:
Mountain View, California

Description:
A series of 10 trees were created for various interior lobbies. Each tree was made entirely from reclaimed mild steel scraps and lighted within, using LED rope lights. The steel scraps were hammered into C shape collars and welded together to form a tree like structure. Collars are overlapped over one another irregularly creating openings for the light to illuminate through.
