fabulously surreal ‘treacle drip’ sculpture for new London offices…

The inverted form of treacle dripping from a spoon. That’s the inspiration behind this truly unique work that is the centrepiece of AHMM Architects’ new Angel Building in London and, at some 22 metres high, the seating cum sculptural installation – courtesy of McChesney Architects – is perhaps one of the most imposing and original works we’ve seen in some time. Taking its title from Lyles’ famous black treacle tin – which is in turn taken from an Old Testament story – the staggering sculpture is fabricated from carbon fibre, enabling its magically slender appearance, and the functionality of it as public seating is achieved by an upholstered leather base, courtesy of designerBill Amberg. A breathtaking wonder of scale, McChesney’s bold installation is a beautiful statement of brave innovation…
