Bern-based Studio Zimoun has sent designboom images of their first permanent installation – a large, towering mechanical sound installation
situated inside an abandoned Toluene tank from 1951 in Dottikon, Switzerland. working closely with architect Hannes Zweifel, The Intervention presents a complex kinetic sound sculpture, with 329 DC-motors arranged meticulously throughout the interior fabric of the space. In an obsessive display of simple and functional materials, the installation articulates a tension between the orderly patterns of modernism and the chaotic forces of life; revealing an intricate series of relationships, similar to those found within the artificial and the organic.
