Mise-en-abyme

After the success of the acclaimed installation at the V&A for the London Design Festival 2015, London-based design studio de Allegri & Fogale bring Mise-en-abyme back to life at Oxo Tower Wharf.

In this new site-specific rendition, the materials from the original sculpture have been recycled, and the structure adapted, to respond to the outdoor setting of Courtyard.

Commissioned by Coin Street, the award-winning lighting manufacturers Innermost – whose headquarters are based on the second floor at Oxo Tower Wharf – have partnered with the design studio de Allegri & Fogale to bring this beautiful new sculpture to South Bank. 

Home to a network of designer-makers, restaurants, bars, cafes and a housing cooperative, Oxo Tower Wharf is a hub for communities and social activities.

Mise-en-abyme is intended to reflect the movement of bodies passing through the site and to encourage interaction among people, objects and public space. It will be visible from Riverside Walkway, as well as Bernie Spain Gardens and Upper Ground. The exhibition is free to enter and will be open daily from 9.00am - 10.00pm.
