Painted copolyester, painted aluminium

Permanent installation at Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen, Herlev
Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen (SDCC) is a newly built extension to Herlev Hospital, which is known for its artistic decoration of the entire building by the artist Poul Gernes.
The artwork FRA ABRIKOS TIL OLIVEN uses the previously developed THINGIVERSE FONT as sculptural objects referencing the names of six of the many colours used by Gernes in his decoration of the main building. These colours' names refer to colours in nature: "abrikos", "appelsin", "fjord", "kobber", "lavendel", and "oliven". The objects have been painted in the corresponding colours.
