Urban People

Born in St Gallen, Switzerland in 1941, Kurt Laurenz Metzler is a celebrated avant-garde sculptor whose favourite medium is aluminium.



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
