Designer Şener Besim will present his first ever large-scale sculptural work, Light the Way, to be installed in each of the three laneways at 80 Collins, visible from Collins, Exhibition and Little Collins streets. Taking inspiration from one of Şener’s iconic pieces of jewellery, the public design installation will light the way to winter for the month of June. The six, 2.4 metre high works are inspired by the geometric patterns used in Ottoman heritage and architectural shapes, a major influence across all Şener’s work.
“The idea of ‘framing space’ is central to the beginnings of our visual language and always has served as a main inspiration for our work, a conversation so to speak. My hope is that these new public works act as ‘VISUAL FRAMING DEVICES’ for our visitors,” says Şener.
