2012

This playful series of works, created for our long-term collaborators at The Office Group at their Paddington Station outpost, saw us pay homage to the station’s eponymous bear. We stripped Paddington bare, in a literal take on his name, housing his iconic red fisherman’s hat, blue toggle coat and suitcase in a series of acrylic boxes, revealing Paddington hiding his dignity with his paws.

We also created a series of railway-themed artworks, comprised of 2,500 genuine train tickets, each with destinations ending at Paddington Station. The tickets have been arranged to radiate out in the shape of a power button, and were collected over the course of one afternoon at the station.

Replacing typical pins with industrial rivets to recreate the childhood pin pad toy, we paid homage to the architecture and technology of railway engineering pioneer Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
