Diamonds |


Behind the old facade of a former diamond grinder in the center of Amsterdam, KNOL made a sparkling piece for the entrance hall of the newly designed building owned by CREA, the cultural organisation of the Universiteit van Amsterdam. On the back wall, wind turbines regulate the air of the hall. This subtle force is used to let the glossy transparent elements rotate, like windmills. The reflection of light causes the sparkle of the installation, reminding of a handfull of diamonds. The elements rotate within hexagon steel frames of stainless steel. – In collaboration with Sjoerd ter Borg and Chris Bakker.
