Working with the well-known glass artist Graham Jones, Andrew Moor Asssociates created this glass public art feature within a hundred yards of London’s legendary Harrods store in Knightsbridge.
The work consists of a glass monolith that stands outside the building, with a 3m tall wall projecting though the exterior lobby. A lower wall then runs parallel to this, running deeper into the main reception lobby. These walls reveal dense, beautiful abstracted landscapes with texture on the glass, including more than 400 mouth-blown glass discs bonded in a gradated coloured grid, starting with reds and yellows and ending up with pale etched discs of a smoky white glass.
The site is visible from Brompton Road, particularly at night time. The three metre tall glass structure emerges from the ground with the suggestion of trees and landscape.. The entire work, internal and external is made with a mixture of transparent ceramics, acid etching and sandblasting with the added bonded on discs of coloured glass.
