Papel Picado patterns

March 06, 2013 by metalab

We are developing custom patterns and colors for the Market Kiosks currently under development for the Greater East End Navigation Blvd. Esplanade.  The traditional technique of die-cutting stacks of colored paper with cultural icons is scaled up and rendered in powder-coated sheet metal.  The shelters will provide dappled light to the public space below.  The units are paired with a version of the pattern as a gradient perforation in the adjacent kiosk.
