Two large red forms, each made from 32 Edwardian-style umbrellas, marked the entrances to the retail village during February 2013.
Commissioned by Value Retail, the
installations were part of a theme of 'Red' within the
Village which also raised funds for the 'Red Foundation'. As the pieces were very
close to large numbers of people, the structures were
completely re-engineered from previous versions. Each
piece was internally lit by seven LED spotlights to
enable them to glow at night.
