COS × Snarkitecture
Seoul, November 2017

Drawing inspiration from COS’s love of playful, modern design, New York-based
practice Snarkitecture has created an interactive installation based on the childhood
memory of marble games. Loop is a series of sinuous and suspended sloped tracks
that curve through the gallery creating an array of uniquely kinetic moments as the visitor’s
vantage point changes.

Using precision engineering, the sculpture is brought to life by a steady hum of white
glass marbles gliding along the interwoven tracks. Breaking through the boundaries of the
gallery, the track and the marbles continue to the adjoining room to collect into a sea of
scattered discarded marbles, inviting guests to explore, contemplate and reflect.

There are approximately 100,000 marbles in the gallery space, each made from glass and measuring 25mm in diameter

Four unique tracks intertwine to create a complex labyrinth with 400 linear meters of track, each one 100m in length

“Children and play inspire our work. The way that children
interact with our physical and architectural surroundings is completely
different to adults.”

— Snarkitecture

One marble is released every five seconds on to a random track to create a rhythmic yet surprising moment
