Pupa – the eco-structure, which is located in the London headquarters of Bloomberg. Construction, designed by British architect Liam Hopkins from the studio Lazerian, made of recycled cardboard, scraps of skin and dismantled wooden pallets.
Form and aesthetics of the structure was inspired by the natural habitat – the cocoons, hives, webs and birds’ nests. The curved ceiling gives the place a sense of home, a cozy cave or even a church vaults.
The unique design constructed of triangular sections, using structural and acoustic properties of the paperboard. To create a form and its individual components were used computer-aided design techniques. Then extracted from the virtual model elements have been glued together by hand.
The Company Bloomberg is engaged in manufacture of products made from cellulose, and therefore Pupa made entirely of their own wastes of company production.
Eco-structure is part of the conceptual name Waste Not, Want It , the other objects which are also made from the wastes of company Bloomberg.
