In 2020 we were invited to participate in conceptualisation of the project dedicated to the participation of the Russian Copper Company, one of the largest producers of refined copper, in the Innoprom International Exhibition, an annual industrial exhibition on a federal scale in Russia. By implementing a plurality of fabrication techniques, the pavilion explores the possibilities of copper as a material. The kinetic interior is a breathing and pulsing space that interacts with the public. It lures people in and takes them on an experiential journey through the company’s history and its bright prospects as it leaps into the future.
