Splinterworks has produced a temporary installation for a hotel in Devon inspired by the shape of a wave.
Created for the Gara Rock Hotel in Devon to provide some intrigue and fun when the hotel reopened following pandemic restrictions, the work was inspired by the shape of a 'waha' barrel wave much-prized by surfers.
True to the design ethos of Splinterworks of creating pieces that are experimental and theatrical but always fully functional, Waha served as both a usable water slide at the cliff-top pool, and as a striking sculptural statement against the southwest coastal backdrop. The striking form handmade from polished stainless steel creates reflections that allow it to blend effortlessly into its environment.
