This creation located in Kings Cross, London has been designed to monumentalise joy during Pride after a difficult year.
Furman are known worldwide for their irreverent architectural creations and infectious love of colour, pattern and ornament – elements which certainly appear in their latest installation titled ‘Proud Little Pyramid.’
Pyramid will remain in London’s King Cross throughout for 6 months throughout the summer. It stands at 31ft and has communal seating integrated into its base, and has been designed to act as a beacon in the centre of King’s Cross.
Furman’s overriding ambition with their art is to decorate and improve public spaces, helping to break down social barriers and to improve people’s everyday lives, aligned with the democratic and inclusive vision of the King’s Cross neighbourhood. Furman will use King’s Cross as a creative playground, delivering multiple artworks across the site as well as a series of pop-up retail experiences, in person and virtual events.
King’s Cross has built a reputation as an arts and culture destination, using its public spaces and buildings to showcase artworks from a huge variety of artists and sculptors such as Eva Rothschild and Tess Jaray, street artists such as Andy Leek and Rana Begum, and painter and curator Rashid Araeen.
