Artwork design, fabrication and installation

Pangaea was commissioned to design, fabricate and install a feature artwork for the Whitnash Civic Centre to celebrate its one-year anniversary. Inspired by the White Ash Tree, the symbol of the town, the six-metre long wall relief was constructed out of layers of furniture-grade ply, bespoke veneered with white ash, oak and walnut.

The design creates a sense of being within the tree’s canopy. It was inspired by the Japanese concept of Forest Bathing, proven to reduce stress hormone production, produce feelings of happiness and free up creativity.
