The Shard WE Sculptures
Project Location: London, United Kingdom
On the 29th September 2021, The Shard unveiled WE, the first publicly accessible sculptural installation in London by world-renowned Spanish sculptor artist Jaume Plensa.
The installation is designed to give the public a chance to frame their individual perspectives, as they walk through Shard Quarter, taking in one figure, followed by the other. By establishing a link between the two, it aims to inspire the viewer to consider the notion of self, alongside the people around them.
The Shard’s owners, the State of Qatar and Sellar, commissioned the piece with curatorial support from Futurecity and a specially formed public art advisory committee, for those visiting, living and working in the area to enjoy the experience created.
IST had the privilege of providing our lighting control systems using iDrive® LED drivers and iMune® control system cluster to create the perfect evening experience and illuminate the outstanding sculptures located at The Shard.
