Known for its innovative designs that challenge the limits of technology and materials, Paul Cocksedge Studio  is an internationally acclaimed design firm that focuses on “simplicity and imagination in order to create unique people-centered designs.” In May, the Studiocompleted one of its latest projects—a public art installation  titled Time Loop—in partnership with Sino Group, one of the most prominent property developers in Hong Kong. A monumental infinite loop fabricated from sustainably sourced timber, the sculpture  sits in Yue Man Square—a central public area in the Kwun Tong district of Hong Kong.

Time Loop  is a gift  from Sino Group to the Kwun Tong community in commemoration of the company’s 50th anniversary and five decades of community building. Inspired by the surrounding square and its history, its curving form harks back to the infinity symbol and is intended to reflect the area’s continuous growth and transformation over the last half century. The installation  is “a gesture towards both the past and the future a mark of respect for Hong Kong’s history as well as a celebration of its constant change and pace of life.”

Though Time Loop itself is a static piece, its form—sloping into infinite loops—is an expression of that motion and change. This sentiment is further expressed by an “infinite” poem, engraved on the sides of the sculpture in two different languages, whose words reflect on the passage of time. Its interconnected rings also frame the views of surrounding architecture, creating new and ever-changing perspectives of its encompassing neighborhood.

A public art installation, Time Loop is intended to provide a space for community members to sit, reflect, and appreciate their surroundings—a place where people can gather, interact, rest, and also play. That sense of community is a central influence in its design and elevates the piece from merely a work of art  to a living entity that—like its historic surroundings—is constantly evolving and changing.

“I can’t wait to see the human form bringing life to the artwork,” Cocksedge reveals. “When people sit on Time Loop they become part of the movement of the city, as well as its transformation. It reflects a place that’s endured for many years, but remains constantly moving and evolving. And that’s the symbolism of the form.”

In partnership with Sino Group, Paul Cocksedge Studio created a public art installation titled Time Loop in Hong Kong's Kwun Tong district.

 The piece's infinite loops are meant to embody the continuous change and motion of its surrounding environment, and its sides are engraved with an “infinite” poem that reflects on the passage of time.
