The Sitoorie Sculpture in Essex

Heatherwick Studio developed the design of a sculpture called the Sitooterie for National Malus Collection in Essex. The word is derived from Scottish and means a small building which literally “sits out”.

The light cube measures 2.4m per axis. and is made from anodized aluminum. Each of the windows are 18mm square-sections glazed with a transparent orange acrylic. All of the thin windows point out of the structure. They start out from the center of the cube and therefore only need one light source. This causes the windows to glow orange.
