EQ Office unveiled Atmospheric wave wall, the first public art installation in Chicago by globally acclaimed artist Olafur Eliasson. The original piece was created specifically for Willis Tower.
EQ selected Eliasson given his international reputation and his emphasis on the environment, climate and humans’ relationship with nature. He was appointed Goodwill Ambassador for renewable energy and climate action by the United Nations Development Program in 2019.
“Our vision is to create workplace destinations, like Willis Tower, that truly energize and inspire people and enhance the vibrancy of our downtown work homes,” said David Moore, portfolio director at EQ. “Art brings beauty and spurs imagination, and it is part of our unique offering that we curate for our customers and visitors. Eliasson’s approachable installation is intertwined with the infrastructure and architecture of the building, further establishing Willis Tower as a hub for community, inspiration and creativity.”
