Widrig explores the ever-morphing natural world of cloud formation in this object. He used computer models that show how clouds are shaped by wind and weather to fix a moment of cloud-like transience.
Although the computer driven CNC milling machine used extremely detailed information to cut the piece, the surface has been left rough to suggest the temporary and fleeting beauty of clouds.
Widrig studied architecture in Germany and the UK. After graduating from the Architectural Association in London with an MA in Architecture and Urbanism in 2006, he joined Zaha Hadid Architects. Since establishing his studio in London, Widrig has worked on architectural concepts, products, objects and experimental furniture editions. His work has won several awards including the FEIDAD Merit Award 2006, the Swiss Arts Award 2007 and has been internationally published and exhibited. He is currently artist-in-residence at the German Academy, Villa Massimo in Rome.
