Designers Molly Hunker and Gregory Corso – whose talents range from interior and installation design to products and graphics – started their own design collaborative in 2010 called SPORTS. They believe in design and its ability to easily and immediately change a person’s spatial and visual experience of a place.
Within the past year they have put that belief into action with two very cool installations in L.A. California: Stay Down Champion, Stay Down and Life Will Kill You. Stay Down Champion, Stay Down (photos at top) was installed at the Woodbury University Hollywood Gallery. Focusing on the ground plane, the piece was comprised of terracotta tiles creating a flowing and colorful interior landscape with bulging areas elevated by transparent acrylic supports highlighted by vibrantly colored lighting.
The earlier installation (bottom images) Life Will Kill You was installed temporarily at the Revolve Clothing showroom in West Hollywood. The cloud-like piece was created using over 100,000 zip ties with the exterior surface composed of longer white zip ties, and the interior levels of shorter colored ones, resulting in a richly textured effect.
