CABINET OF CURIOSITIES | M&O 2018
WonderGlass presents a conceptual installation fusing ethereal visual art with exquisite lighting objects at Maison and Objet 2018.
Presenting ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ by WonderGlass, an installation full of whimsy and surprise to showcase some of their finest works by design luminaries Claesson Koivisto Rune, Nao Tamura, Marcel Wanders, Dan Yeffet and Hideki Yoshimoto. The installation, divided into quadrants, showcases the objects framed against large backlit photographs created in the Italian Dolomites.
Under the creative direction of WonderGlass, the images, a contrast of nature and human creation, feature brilliant smoke clouds of hot pink and azure blue, or the idiosyncratic addition of colourful balls to dramatically evoke the union of dream and reality in exquisite creations.
The layering of object and visual art in the cabinets provides the optical illusion of an installation that spans well beyond the dimensions of the space.
From Dan Yeffet’s experimental floor sculpture ‘Hollow’ (2016) to Claesson Koivisto Rune’s elegant chandelier ‘Grappa’ (2014), the objects on show have been carefully selected from WonderGlass’s catalogue of work over the last five years, with the addition of ‘Hollow’ presented for the first time in blue.
