The installation of eda, which means 'branch' in Japanese, consisted of 2,000 interlocking carbon twigs.

Moureaux suspended coloured twigs from the ceiling and used white ones to create a free-standing structure on the floor.

Here's little bit of text from the designer:


eda by emmanuelle moureaux

Beauty shown by plants in the natural world. Spreads of trees, colors of flowers, flows of leaf veins, linkages of cells. Everything is in a systematic harmony. In eda, forms are determined according to the natural system.

eda by Emmanuelle Moureaux

eda is assemblages of fine lines. Each line exists straight, And large complexities contain small simplicities. Biological forms overlap rhythmically, Link air with another and create new space orders. (“eda” meaning “ branch” in Japanese, is a product which creates spaces)
