Pool Re: Connecting Values

participatory projects

This project explored the company values of Pool Reinsurance, from innovation to collaboration and excellence, inviting staff to collaboratively create and connect painted shapes into sculptures reflecting elements of the values in participatory workshops. 

These creations then informed a series of icons for each value; five repeating pattern designs and a three panel triptych. The designs were printed onto organic cotton for the panels and soft velvet fabric for the cushions and installed as a permanent artwork and series of cushions in the Pool Re office hub space.
