Commissioned for the 100% Design Show during the London Design Festival 2012, Paul Cocksedge’s ‘Auditorium’ moves away from conventional methods of creating a confined space: blocks, solid planes, edges. Instead, a virtually invisible material is brought on-site to be delicately woven by hand into a system as complex and transparent as a spider’s web.

The process only ends when the space has been properly defined within what has now become a partition, but not a wall. Open, but confined; translucent and yet solid, the ‘Auditorium’ network plays with our notions of exterior and interior space, where they begin and where they end.
