Unzipped: Large Scale Artworks by Alex Chinneck

Published Aug 8, 2019

British sculptor Alex Chinneck unveiled these amazing large scale sculptures earlier this year at the Milan Design Week.

“Alex Chinneck, known for inverting electricity pylons and tying grandfather clocks in knots, has ‘unzipped’ the façade of a building in Milan as part of the city’s design week festivities.

To create the dramatic effect, Chinneck created a totally new elevation in the style of traditional milanese architecture, which appears to open up to reveal the building’s interior. The interior spaces, on the other hand, are radically transformed through unexpected ‘openings’ in the cement pavement and stone walls.”
