Qatar’s upcoming shopping destination Doha Festival City is set for the installation of its first art piece as part of its commitment to deliver a world-class shopping experience to surprise and delight customers.
Created by visionary artist and sculptor, David Harber, the bespoke ‘Sculpted Torus’ will adorn the mall’s Centre Court. The impressive sculpture, 4m in diameter, will wow guests visiting the mall when it opens in April this year.
The piece is an adaptation of David Harber Ltd’s iconic ‘Torus’ and is part of a series of five variations that will be installed at Doha Festival City. The unique Sculpted Torus is made from mirror-polished, marine grade stainless steel and will sit alongside a succession of smaller, 2m Torus’ – all of which will be slight variations of the original design.
“We are delighted to have collaborated with a renowned artist like Harber, and truly excited to be bringing his art to Qatar for the first time – showcasing his brilliant talent. Doha Festival City is more than just a shopping destination, it is a place where visitors will be able to take advantage of a huge variety of entertainment, retail and dining, in addition to premium design art concepts which are big, bold and have the wow factor, just like our mall,” says the mall general manager Trevor Hill.
Harber is also producing a 4m bronze ‘Keystone Ring’ with a Verdigris finish to be located outside one of the main entrances to Doha Festival City Mall, and is currently designing some hanging ‘tree canopies’ to be placed in the two glass atria of the North Food Court.
