Swivel brings colour and interactivity to St Giles Square, a vibrant public space beside Tottenham Court Road.
This area of London is a place of transition: from underground train links including the newly opened Elizabeth Line to performance venues; historical sites to experiential food halls, yet they’re set against a grey concrete backdrop. Swivel is a celebration of materiality and movement, and invites the public to have a moment in this space. Through unexpected hues and patterns, Swivel will brighten up this area and offer a juxtaposing natural material to a square that is surrounded by many man-made structures – from the Brutalist Centre Point to contemporary glass buildings. The square has many points of entry, and Swivel allows people to pause their journey, and enjoy this playground of seating. Swivel is designed by Sabine Marcelis, with marble provided by Solid Nature and supported by Almacantar.
