Treedom is an emblematic installation designed for the SZIGET festival.
The aim is to gather people around a simple symbol, a geometrical forest. More than a simple sculpture, we propose a huge installation that can be walked through, and experienced from within.
A network of pole trees is randomly dispatched on a square grid to create a seemingly wild ensemble, with various densities and transparencies depending on the viewpoint.
Each tree is fastened to its neighbouring ones by the branches, which emphasizes the feeling of being in a forest.
Some benches join the trees at their bases, offering outdoor lounges. The installation provides a slight shade during the day, but also a warm ambiance at night time, being illuminated from the canopy.
