Villa Walala by Camille Walala at London Design Festival 2017 is an exuberantly colourful and unexpected architectural landscape in Exchange Square, Broadgate. Constructed from vinyl, sealed PVC inners and high-strength nylon, it is a ‘soft-textured building-block castle’ covered and coloured with digitally printed patterns.
The component shapes are pinned to the ground and inflated by fans, transforming them from flat forms into a vast and immersive temporary island of shape and colour that begs to be explored, invites playfulness, relieves stress, and visually dominates the area.
Accompanied by squeezy stress balls and other surprises, the Villa is intended to inject a little joy into what may otherwise have been just another day at the office. Camille Walala – a ‘purveyor of positivity’ – transforms materials and spaces through her characteristic use of exuberant geometries and bold colours to inspire and stimulate her audience. Having established herself in East London, Camille Walala has created numerous installations, objects, and experiences from small to the total across the city and beyond.
This incredible creation will be set at Exchange Square, 100 Liverpool Street, London EC2M 2RH.
