ArchitectMade | Panda - Small by Bjarke Ingels
On the occasion of the arrival of two giant pandas, the Copenhagen Zoo asked Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) to create a home for them with an objective of creating ideal mating conditions. The layout mimics the yin-yang symbol that in Chinese philosophy represents opposite but balanced forces within a circle. The wooden figure Panda, designed by BIG, is available in two sizes: small and large. The upper body rotates on the lower body and the arms and legs are movable.
- Body made from walnut and maple wood and the ears are made of leather
- Small - H 10cm x W 7cm
- Made in Denmark
Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) is a Copenhagen, New York and London based group of architects, designers, urbanists, landscape professionals, interior and product designers, researchers and inventors established in 2006. BIG’s architecture emerges out of a careful analysis of how contemporary life constantly evolves and changes. Not least due to the influence from multicultural exchange, global economic flows and communication technologies that all together require new ways of architectural and urban organisation.
