Inoca is a bespoke Leaf Fall sculpture inspired by the unique winds that blow through Chicago
Our client briefed us to create a canopy flowing through the atrium space of the Conrad Hotel in Chicago with a compositional narrative derived from its location.
Inspired by the Native American people originating from Chicago known as The Inoca, we created a spiralling flurry of 1300 suspended porcelain leaves, reminiscent of the unique winds that blow through the windy city.
