IsoForm is a 7m high steel sculpture located at Liebherr Australia in Perth, Western Australia

Inspiration and Form

IsoForm is a long reaching steel arch that not only echoes the mechanical arms of Liebherr equipment but also their steel composition, connectivity and scale.

Drawn elements of the Liebherr machinery are laser cut into the planes which twist and turn to create the arch. The sculpture reveals different cut-outs and shadows depending on the angle of view. Referencing isometric drawing techniques it purposefully breaks away from the formalised angles and instead creates intertwining steel planes that represent the journeys of materials, modules, personnel and expertise that occur in building behind where it is located.

The artwork is constructed from the same materials and the same processes as the industrial equipment located in its surroundings. It is sympathetic and complimentary to the surroundings.

The concept was designed and developed by Adam and Jane Coffey. Construction was completed on site by the Liebherr fabrication team.
