A Gust of Wind, 2010
Designed for the London Design Festival in collaboration with Corian®
Height: 19.6 feet
Material: Corian®

"I had always thought of Corian as a heavy material. This installation is challenging this perception, creating a very light and dreamy piece."

Three hundred curvaceous pieces of Corian®, exhibited for one day only, as part of the V&A’s Friday Late Programme. The ‘pages’ represent a stack of paper that has been blown into the air by a gust of wind. Each of these limited edition pieces has been engraved and then handmade into 300 unique forms by Paul Cocksedge. They can now function as paper trays, becoming a place for wandering paper to gather.
