Urbis looks back on the Designday® installations.

Scrap Wall called out to us from the roof as we approached ECC. He was up there just finishing up the final details of the installation he designed for ECC, taping heavy black plastic to the clerestory windows to block out the light inside. 

ECC had cleared a huge space in their large showroom and turned it over to this young artist-designer. Walking into the newly veiled room, the scene was set with half the space entirely black, the other half white. Using the vast range of classic and quirky design pieces from ECC, as well as small objects like cast-glass birds from Scrap Wall’s K Rd store One, the space took on an elegant, yet eerie aesthetic. Couches were shrouded with white fabric, neon light works by Scrap Wall and Mariano Fortuny lounge lamps all came together in this strong monochromatic installation.
