flying pins



Eindhoven, Netherlands 


Flying Pins is one of 15 large scale projects fabricated by K&A for the artists Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen.  Located in the city of Eindhoven in the Netherlands, “Flying Pins” is an example of K&A’s innovative use of composite materials and the creative engineering solutions of Serge Labesque, K&A’s fabrication director. The pins seem to fly through the air but actually employ an innovative steel structure with slip-together invisible connections.


Artist: Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen
