Wood Wharf, Canary Wharf

Indigo’s fourth client for the Olympic Games, Canary Wharf, wanted to create an impressive outdoor space with an immediate ‘wow’ factor.
Canary Wharf, 2012 OlympicsThe client wanted to embrace the Olympic spirit whilst retaining the utmost finesse, with the most discerning of royalty and A List celebrities in attendance. 32 A4 Xtreme Giant Parasols in red, white and blue fabrics were installed at the iconic Canary Wharf alongside the River Thames.

The mooring adjacent to the installation was used to accommodate super-yachts owned by VIP guests visiting the games, highlighting the significance of the location.

The parasols were kept as a permanent fixture in Wood Wharf until recently; the area played host to many prestigious events over the years, including London’s ice-sculpting festival and KERB Street Food events, where 56,000 people visited the area in three days for one exhibition.
