Next project Carbon Ladder Previous project Julia Necklace

Marc was invited by the London Design Festival to design an exterior object or large sculpture to be sold at auction after the festival. The large mushroom-shaped pavilion, named ‘Supercell’, is made of laser-cut enamelled steel panels in a hexagonal pattern. The enamel, in celadon green, pale blue and mauve, acts as a protectant of the steel from erosion. Marc worked alongside Festival sponsor ArcelorMittal for this project and the pavilion was located on London’s Southbank.
