Throwing Shade

Camille Walala

Plaza Sin Nombre – Concéntrico 09

Throwing Shade is an optical oasis designed by Camille Walala.

The vibrant pavilion offers both relief from the midday sun as well as a joyful escape amongst the muted tones of the inner city landscape.

As the planet rotates, the moiré-like shade cast by the geometric architecture slowly dances across the floor.

The participant can move around the structure to find that new patterns are perpetually unveiling themselves to reveal a kinetic work of art.

A place to meet and connect, or just simply watch the world go by.

Camille Walala

Known for her ambitious, large-scale and explosively colourful interventions in public spaces, Camille Walala uses the man-made landscape as a platform for disseminating positivity. Her work encompasses full-facade murals, immersive 3D installations, street art, interiors and set design – characterised by a fusion of bold colours and playful geometric patterns. Since her ‘Dream Come True Building’ burst onto the Shoreditch streetscape in 2015 and thrust her into the spotlight, Camille and her creative producer, Julia Jomaa, have been engaged in an increasingly bold roster of international projects. These have included collaborations with leading global brands – such as LEGO, for whom she created the HOUSE OF DOTS; the creative direction of the groundbreaking Mauritian hotel SALT of Palmar; and a slew of major installations for events like NYC’s WantedDesign and London Design Festival – including Walala Lounge, as complete suite of semi-permanent street furniture that transformed South Molton Street, Mayfair, into a corridor of colour. Camille finds inspiration in community and collaboration, and the power or colour and pattern to transform atmospheres, elevate moods and spark positivity.
