israeli artist zygo, together with his creative team, plans to build the largest piece of art ever created – the clothespin tower. the design imagines a highly sculptural and symbolic 170m-tall skyscraper in dubai, UAE. it turns the common peg into a new dimension that soars up into the city’s skyline. aiming to start construction in 2023, the unique project is currently looking for strategic partners for securing land, construction rights and more.
zygo’s concept for the clothespin tower in dubai follows his theory of unifying two halves to become one. for this, two complementary halves – or two souls in his mind – come together to form a perfect union. this idea derives the form of the new tower, which, similar to its namesake, is defined by a pair of parts that work in harmony together.
the union of the two halves of the clothespin tower strengthens its relation and creates new opportunities. this becomes the perfect metaphor for the future relationship of israel – the home of the real estate developer – and the UAE – the home of the tower. its form becomes a 21st century symbol of love, peace and hope as part of dubai’s skyline. it is not just another beautiful and cool skyscraper in the emirates; it comprises a deep philosophical concept with highly emotional significance.
the special concept becomes functional as well as artistic. it makes art accessible to human beings, even offering a new emotional experience to its inhabitants. residents and guests can visit, live and work within the largest art piece ever created.
