Spirit of Place

London, UK

Artist and designer Simone Brewster partners with cork brand Amorim to host an installation during London Design Festival 2023.

Spirit of Place showcases five large, colourful cork sculptures, with the largest reaching 2.5 metres tall.

The installation represents Amorim's cork forest in Herdade de Rio Frio, Portugal. According to Brewster, the future of cork forests relies on "upright expression, drought resistance, regenerative growth and biodiversity conservation" and these four elements are reflected in the installation.

Spirit of Place takes place from 16 to 24 September 2023 at Strand Aldwych, London WC2R 1ES, UK.
