Mother and Son by Meneer Voss.
As a child, Meneer Voss would spend hours with his mother searching for the perfect rock on the waste sites of the Carrara mines in Italy. This inherent fascination with Carrara allows him to explore all the various possibilities of this wonderful material. From the Pantheon to Michelangelo’s David, Carrara marble’s history is rooted in European art and architecture. By using the latest circular technologies in his ‘Mother & Son’-design Meneer Voss brings Carrara marble and specifically Statuario marble into the 21st century.
In his distinctive design and materials, Meneer Voss and Cooloo showcase the versatility of the stone. Transforming his mother’s Carrara statues into life-size artworks, that appear to be solid, but are actually so soft that they can be used as sculptural sun loungers. The duo of contemporary objects fools the beholder and leaves you with a sense of wonder.
