City center festival: PROTO
From Friday 24 June to Sunday 11 July, the rear of Central Station will be one of the stages for PROTO Art & Design Expo. When you arrive at this location, you can't miss the unique artwork, over nine meters high! With the theme “In Perspective” van Vanderkamp Pompen designed the artwork “Loop” in collaboration with Viesrood, commissioned by PROTO Art & Design Expo and constructed it with its own piping.
The design was created by playing with separate elements with the aim of realizing a visually attractive object. The tubes cross each other in different ways, forming playful structures and an infinite circular loop (loosely translated loop). This has made it a striking but also a sustainable landmark; after PROTO, all materials used are functionally used again in temporary pump installations all over the world.
Read about the background, the challenges, the Vanderkamp solution and the outcome of this project.
"Vanderkamp pumps are building a solid reputation in the UK - not only for their tailor-made pump and pipework supplies, but also for their quality cutting-edge engineering designs."
