Dublin airport recently opened a new lounge for premium passengers travelling between the US and Ireland.
We were asked to create a central installation to express this unique intersection between the two countries. We created a piece made up of over 600 folded mirrored aeroplanes, each finding its own place within the overall whirlwind form.
The concept was inspired by bird migration, focusing on the way that birds create paths between places and retrace them each year, symbolising the migration of returning passengers through the lounge. The body of forms echoes the playful way in which a swarm of birds dances with each other in the air.
