The Stockholm Design Studio Note has recently completed Waiting Windows, a meditation on the time we spend waiting for something.

Note Design Studio in Stockholm recently completed Waiting Windows, an outdoor art installation consisting of stainless steel structures of various sizes located on a hill; the work represents a meditation on the time we spend waiting for during the course of our lives.

“Waiting is a poetic state of mind, but it is often considered a void in our daily lives; if you allow yourself to actively occupy that moment rather than be passive, then it becomes something else….”

Part of a group commission to create public art in the municipality of Nacka, the site-specific installation is “a sculptural study of the ‘dead time’ between waiting and the event”.

As part of the “The Art of Urban Creation” initiative, the studio was asked to create a public work close to what will be the new Sickla station. Reflecting on the concept of waiting, the team designed the installation by visually translating the multi-faceted sense that this word can take.

In the end, the winning idea was to mirror the landscape through almost metaphysical temporal door-windows. During the daytime hours, the light hits the Windows Waiting, bouncing the forest scenery through its reflection, while at night each window is illuminated on top of the frame, creating a work of art of great effect.
