The project is an abstract interpretation of the urban and architectural phenomena called HUB, where people come from different places, cross each other at this very particular point and then redispatch in various directions.
Every train station, airport, subway station, bus station can be considered as a hub. This project is designed as a 3D textile sculpture, going from a square shape on the wall to an organized line on the other side of the showcase.
HUB is an installation designed by ALLEGORY a Geneva, Switzerland, based architecture and design studio. The project was conceived as an answer to the invitation of the Placette art space. Each month la Placette asks someone to occupy their showcase and to create something with only one rule, that it takes something from the project installed the previous month. In Allegory’s case, the previous project was a hanging middle-eastern scarf, in other words a 2D knotted square piece of fabric hung on the wall.
The project which will come after Allegory’s hub will be designed by Adrien Rovero.
