Unveiled to coincide with Brixton Design Week, FLASH is the work of Kishimoto and local design studios 2MZ and Studio db.

The piece, which uses one of the duo’s trademark patterns, was created using a series of large digitally-cut stencils.

Brixton Design Week is on now and runs until September 21.

    Is it permanent ‘pavement art’ or will it fade, or disappear, with time?
    It certainly seems to have been brought directly onto the paving stones and would appear to have been applied with the permission of the authorities. Otherwise it would be grafitti I suppose…

    I think it will fade with time, the footfall there is crazy. It will probably be a few months at the most. Like how the design represents the space outside the station. I feel how that looks every time I try and meet someone there.

  • Looks like it was done with chalk spray paint, we sell a lot of it for projects like these.

    Great implementation and yes it will fade under that amount of foot fall in a few weeks tops. Failing that the street cleaning machine thing will have it no probs!

  • looks fantastic but the sort of thing I’d end up tripping over, despite it being completely flat

  • Oh Wewl

    highly detailed inlaid terrazzo prints used to be popular in public spaces back in the 1930’s.
    Why does this have to be temporary spray paint? tories wouldn’t pay for it?
    clearly it gets lots of foot traffic.

  • The Storm last Thursday washed it away. The weather was with us for 4-5 days. THX CR.
