Floret is a geometric, biologically-inspired artwork composed of three-dimensional thermochromic self-similar modules stitched together to create a tapestry of multiple patterns and varied hues. The floral images and shifting ‘root’ structures that emerge out of a kind of warp and weft echo the living wall and stand in communion rather than in competition. Floret cuts a distinct figure on the hearth wall while maintaining an understated presence within the space.
The colours of the thermochromic root structure change according to the amount of heat and sunlight in the lobby space to ensure a different ending to the story at each telling. This dynamic geometric tapestry changes and ‘lives’ just the same as the living wall opposite the lobby space to produce a communicative narrative about life at Kipling Acres.
