Anabata Media | July 4, 2022

Yinka Ilori is a London-based designer famous for her trademark that always displays a fun colorful side to each of her works. Recently, Ilori built a pavilion known as 'Filtered Rays.' This pavilion is the first work built by Ilori as a public space. By the community, later this pavilion will be used to organize a program of creative workshops, ranging from yoga, meditation, dance, and forming from July to September. The Filtered Rays Pavilion is located in front of the Estrel Berlin hotel, Germany.

"I want to explore how architecture, materials, and colors can create new perspectives for audiences to create moments where their view of the outside world changes." Yinka Ilori said

The installation invites hotel guests and nearby residents to walk through a labyrinth-like structure with a colorful cone roof that provides moments of intimacy and short meditation but also as a space where people can gather and create new memories in their lives.

The pavilion features scaffolding and a translucent football cone-like shape made of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), a recyclable material. The cone is designed to form an eye-catching canopy on top of a colorful color palette. When visiting the Filtered Rays pavilion, visitors usually look up at the ceiling, so they can feel the softness of the light coming in past the colorful cone.

In addition, Yinka Ilori also applies dominant color tones with playfulness and interesting shape details on the ceiling that is intended to enliven the public space in Berlin. Red, yellow, green, purple, and blue are the colors applied to the pavilion in contrast with the surrounding environment as a background, making this pavilion look attractive.

Filtered Rays was the first permanent pavilion built in Berlin. Although arranged with a permanent building structure, Yinka Ilori designed this pavilion to be demolished so that it can be removed and moved to another location easily. This also applies to scaffolding as well as modular cones that can be easily disassembled and reused.
