Tobias Rehberger’s Almost Everybody is a site-specific work for WilkinsonEyre’s Gasholders, a residential development at King’s Cross.

The work comprises 41 drop-shaped glass lamps in five different colours. Suspended from the ceiling, they are inspired by the Gasholders’ handmade cast-iron frames. But the work extends beyond the physicality of the lamps and depends on the building’s inhabitants to exist; with every person that comes in or goes out, lights come on and lights go off.
