Interior Design: “Pupa” Bloomberg London by Liam Hopkins
“Pupa” bu Liam Hopkins
Pupa is a habitat by Liam Hopkins of Lazerian within Bloomberg’s London headquarters made from reclaimed cardboard and pallets. Designer Liam Hopkins of Lazerian describes “Pupa” as a “habitat” for the London headquarters of Bloomberg. Manchester-based design company Lazerian created this nifty structure out of recycled cardboard and pallets, a kind of indoor cocoon that thinks outside of the cardboard box.
Made as a commission for Bloomberg Philanthropy by art and design agency Arts Co, this cardboard habitat was one of a series of projects created entirely out of the Bloomberg headquarter’s waste, while providing a new space for employees to chat and relax. “Commissioned for Bloomberg Philanthropy by art and design agency Arts Co, ‘Waste Not, Want It’ is a series of specially commissioned art and design projects made almost entirely out of Bloomberg’s waste.” Hopkins calls the construction effort a “Sisyphean task,” similar to what birds or insects may undertake when building their habitats.
