Choi +Shine’s “The Urchins” – An Incredible Large-Scale Crochet Lace Installation

Over FIFTY crocheters worked on this absolutely stunning Choi + Shine-designed lace installation featured in this year’s “i light marina bay” in Singapore.

“During the day, the crocheted surface of the Urchins reflects, absorb and retransmit sunlight.”

“In the morning or late afternoon sun, the Urchins appear as glowing, translucent object.”

“During the full day sun, the lightweight and yet huge lace urchins cast intricate, patterned shadows creating both a pleasant visual experience and providing a small shelter from the hot sun.”
