A collaborative project by Material and Maarten de Reus

kilburnday01

 

Designed by Material in collaboration with Maarten de Reus. Two metre high stainless-steel letterforms create a fence and gates to the new park entrance on the busy Kilburn High Road. Tautological in nature, the gates ‘tell it like it is’. After dark, the letters are lit by LED groundlights specially developed by Material for this installation. Opened in November 2004.
