Osloo – FOS

Venice, 2011

'Osloo' is a 70 sqm floating pavilion, which is ‘activated and fully realised’ through different events and audience encounters. Originally shown in 2010 in Copenhagen, it was part of the Danish Pavilion at la Biennale di Venezia 2011. During this time, it was open to the public and offered a free programme of events based around the theme ‘Language’.

Special versions of the Kvadrat textile Blitz are used on Osloo as ‘sails’. They feature a graphic design by FOS based on World War I battleship camouflage, and partition the space while providing protection from the wind.
