Happiness was pure and simple in childhood. Even a random water pipe could trigger our imaginations, for example, using it as a toy to communication and just for saying “hi” to friends. When we all grow up, do we still remember that pureness while pursuing luxuries and prestige in a high-ended business centre?
In the busy shopping mall with plenty of high-class shops, the installation art “Colour Palace” is uniquely outstanding and catch everyone’s attention due to its special shapes and colours. With the imaginations of 5DS design team, water pipes symbolize a direct and close communication, which is often forgotten and neglected in the society.
Integrated with an inspiration of the Indian special day “Holi Festival”, which people conveying love messages by throwing coloured powder to each other, “Colour Palace” is painted with rainbow-like colours to remind us of love, peace, and equality, as well as build a lovely and colourful area for kids.
As the installation is closely related to voice and communications, electronic speakers with different creative designs are placed on the soundproof cottons. The shape is designed to be a tree, which brings a lively and eternal meaning, so that people can look at the artworks and take rest in the shade of tree.
