Central Embassy just turned five years old, and to mark the occasion, the luxury shopping mall commissioned New-York design studio Snarkitecture to transform its ground floor into an Instagram-worthy interactive display called Tilting Forest.
This Bangkok installation is the world debut of the design studio’s Tilting Forest concept, which features 10-meter-tall blue and white cones. When touched, the cones slowly tilt, sway and change the “landscape” of the installation into a “living forest.”
Tilting Forest is not the first collaboration between Central Embassy and Snarkitecture. In 2017, they partnered together to produce The Beach, which gave people the chance to play in a sea of nearly one million antimicrobial plastic balls.
Snarkitecture is based in Brooklyn, New York and was founded by Daniel Arsham, Ben Porto and Alex Mustonen. The collaborative design practice is known for its stunning reinterpretations of everyday structures, objects and experiences.
Tilting Forest is at G/F of Central Embassy, 1031 Phloen Chit Rd, Pathum Wan, Bangkok
