Fountain skip by Oliver Bishop Young

Mint has commissioned Oliver Bishop Young to design a skip installation for our ‘Forget me Not’ exhibition during the London Design Festival.

Oliver came up with a pond-like installation with a fountain operated by solar panels, which greatly attracted drivers and walkers by!

Bishop Young converts empty skips into public spaces. His work focuses mainly on the exchange of waste materials, re-use of waste and making use of wasted spaces. He is a Goldsmiths University graduate and was recently nominated among the top 10 students projects on Dezeen.

Sadly, the skip eventually had to go … but luckily Oliver was able to drain the water out in no time thanks to the kind road workers who happened to be right next to it that day… Saved him 6 hours of water pumping!
