Nutmeg Grove

Michele Righetti

Inspired by the vibrant colours and uniqueness of the nutmeg seed, with its bright auburn hues and striated patterns, Italian-born artist Michele Righetti hand forged stainless steel sheets and painted these with layers of car paint to achieve this bright eye-catching metallic sculpture. A contemporary interpretation of a nutmeg seed magnified many times from its original size, this cutting-edge sculptural installation was commissioned by Orchard Central to celebrate its heritage and history of Orchard Road which derived its name from the nutmeg, pepper and fruit orchards that used to lie on either side of the street in the 1840s.
Location:Orchard Central, Level 1 (Near Taxi Stand)
Material:Hand forged stainless steel coated with car paint
