COS Presents “Loop” Art Installation Of Snarkitecture In Seoul


Snarkitecture's designers are known for their love of exploring the boundaries between art and architecture, and for hanging up to 700 pairs of sneakers under the ceiling of a fashion store. Now the New York-based creative studio in cooperation with the fashion label COS is presenting a unique art installation at the Gana Art Center in Seoul.

The “Loop” art installation consists of a series of four very special metal tracks that twist in curves through the white exhibition space and thus form a winding path. The sculpture is brought to life by a steady hum of 100,000 glass marbles, with a marble being sent onto the lane every five seconds. The installation embodies the interdisciplinary nature of Snarkitecture's work in the fields of art, design and architecture and offers visitors a multi-sensory experience.

Every five seconds, one of the 100,000 glass marbles rolls over the 400-metre-long track

“We wanted to use Loop to create a contemplative environment, a space that does not open up immediately when entering”, says Daniel Arsham, co-founder of Snarkitecture. “The design was supposed to be playful on the one hand, but on the other hand we wanted to create a work that offered an opportunity for retreat. It was important to us to offer visitors a completely new and inspiring environment and feeling.”

If you want to have a look at the COS x Snarkitecture Art installation at your leisure, you can do this daily from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm at the Gana Art Center.
