Chelsea alumnus Anish Kapoor’s Orbit unveiled (officially!)
We reported on it over two years ago – when it was first commissioned – but today Anish Kapoor’s 114.5 sculpture was officially unveiled (despite being clearly visible for three months now).
The Chelsea College of Art and Design alumnus’ sculpture – the ArcelorMittal Orbit – is the tallest in Britain and was designed in collaboration with the architect Cecil Balmond. Set to attract 1 million visitors to Stratford’s Olympic Park annually, its design incorporates the five Olympic rings and is made from 63% recycled steel.
