Brommagatan 16-18, Helsingborg

Type of work: Public art commission

Place: Brommagatan 16-18, Tågaborg in Sweden

Material: Ceramic tiles

Year: 1995

About the commission:  The commission was to design the patterns of tile formations around the entrances and windows on two new buildings. The tiles are glazed with chamotte, so called Sydney-tiles from the factory in Höganäs north of Helsingborg in Sweden. The twin buildings were each given a pattern of tiles which responded to, as well as differed from, its neighbour in colour and style. The left one is stricter while the right one has a more vivid expression.
