Unadulterated creative play is truly only found as a child. For Tracey Neuls and Nicola Yeoman, design is rooted in this emotional freedom. For the London Design Festival 2010, the pair rekindled the innocence explored in their architectural makings as children. An emotive explosion personal to the lives and work of both designers, the large-scale installation plays with perspective and form: a shoe chandelier cascades through an extrapolated tabletop; baubles and buttons, treasures and tacks, arc in artful patterns across the floor. Exploring the naïveté existing beneath the safety of a tabletop – be it fortress, tearoom, or even shoe shop – the piece captures that moment in time where we could be anything and everything.
