The Hoberman chandelier, a piece tailored to catch the eye of the curious minds that occupy the building, uses kinetics to bring a mathematical volume to life. This geometric structure, crafted in aluminium, expands and contracts in a soft breathing motion and will only be viewed in its full cycle by guests who pause to wait in the reception area.
XTX’s founder, Alex Gerko, is a mathematician with a passion for scientific and mathematical art and design. His team are known for their inherently inquisitive minds – always looking to understand the world and the hidden mathematics behind it. This became the core inspiration for the series of works we created across their London HQ, celebrating the complex and intelligent nature of the XTX world.
