Tom Claassen, Falcon, 2021


Stainless steel, 15.4 x 3.9 x 4 metres

Tom Claassen (born 1964, The Netherlands)

Continuing his signature sculptural style, Tom Claassen has unveiled Falcon at Hamad International Airport, an abstract representation of Qatar’s national bird. Taking inspiration from the falcon’s soft feathers, the vivid outline of the bird mimics the aviation routes from Qatar to the rest of the world. These curves are also derived from Arabic calligraphy and the folds found in the fabric of traditional Qatari attire. The falcon sits on a ledge facing the Departures Hall, exuding royalty with its gold finish.
