During Salone del Mobile 2017 in Milan, Marcel Wanders will be presenting his unique ability to defy the laws of matter. Exploring the latest skilled techniques for treating mirror glass, Marcel Wanders will share the innovative ‘Pop’ collection of transformed mirrors.
Part of this collection is the eye-catching ‘Lollipop’, a statement mirror piece of enlarged proportions. Its iconic shape is not only memorable but has also built-in storytelling qualities, ‘Lollipop’ gives distinctive character and personality to any living environment. By finding new treatments to work mirror glass, Marcel Wanders has designed hard surface material in a way that gives the illusion of being soft like textile material.
“As designers, experimentation is essential to our process. Looking for ways to do what's never been done before, that's why we're here,”
says Marcel Wanders.
“This project is an example of what can happen when two world-class partners work together; hand-in-hand innovation and relentless imagination unfold,”
