Metzler created six distinct characters for ION Orchard such as the Lady Shopper and the Businessman to symbolise everyday life in the city. Urban People conveys a sensation of movement and dynamism in an extraordinary manner.

Metzler says: ‘My sculptures tell stories with amused irony, they converse, they become alive and they turn into theatre’.

Material: Aluminium

Heights: Between 2.0m and 2.2m
