OSMO is an inflatable infinity space that reproduces the cosmos. Visitors are invited to step into a monumental silver sphere with a projected universe held within its interior made from reflective silver mylar – a NASA space material. OSMO is an experiment in totally transforming an awkward and busy public space into a place of wonder and tranquility. The design team has used a map of the constellations to chart nearly 3000 stars and planets to re-create the cosmos.
A spa retreat of sorts, offering shelter from our pervasive digital technologies, where mobile phone and wireless signals will be shielded by a conductive membrane.
Loop.pH is a London based spatial laboratory experimenting across the fields of design, architecture and the sciences. As a studio we create visionary experiences and environments that allow people to dream and re-imagine new visions for our future. We explore the role of art and design in public space by working outside of the gallery, museum and laboratory.
