Sunlight soap inspires new installation at Port Sunlight

Box Room, Saturday 17th July – Sunday 19th September 2021

A new, large-scale art installation inspired by the iconic Sunlight soap packaging will be unveiled at Port Sunlight village in the Wirral this summer.

Created by artist Tod Hanson, Box Room combines graphics inspired by the world’s first packaged and branded laundry soap with references to the architectural features of the village and the industrial heritage of Lever Brothers famous soap factory.

Box Room will be on show inside Port Sunlight’s church hall, which was once part of the MacFisheries shops complex in the village and thought to be used as a bakery. The outside of the 18 foot long box installation amplifies graphic elements from the Sunlight packaging, while inside is a room which fuses the functional design of a factory space with a decorative domestic interior.

Admission to Box Room is free and tickets can be booked online at https://tickets.portsunlightvillage.com/ COVID-related safety measures including social distancing and limited visitor numbers will be in place.

Tickets will be on sale from July.
