hover building modelHoover Building Facade Model

London's Hoover Buildings have long been heralded as a monument to the art deco movement. Designed by Wallis, Gilbert and Partners, and built in 1933, these structures are magnificent and a real advertisement for the Hoover company. The beautiful facades were a revolution in the 1930s and the use of color was especially bold with the light green window frames making the buildings unmistakable. This architectural sculpture is of the facade of Building No. 7 which served as the staff canteen and rec center. The model was handcrafted by the duo Chisel & Mouse in their studio in Sussex, England and is made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. The window frames are made of etched brass. See more work from Chisel & Mouse here.
