For years we have designed “acrylic mirror products and installations”, while taking care to generate as little leftover material as possible during production. We have collected the parts of acrylic we could not re-use all the while to be able to build a big, colourful, mirror installation.
As studio mo man tai we are known for colorful design products that put a smile on the buyer's face.
...but every year during Dutch Design Week we take part with a personal project/installation, without any commercial intent – meaning that once a year we do not focus on customer requirements or such but realize an installation (together with bussines partners) that communicates a set of values that are important to us.
This year we were able to realize a sparkling installation in our studio at the Hastelweg in Eindhoven. We invite the visitor to also have a "glimpse behind the curtains" and show how our products (all local and 'fair') are produced - a standard that comes naturally to us!
The installation “Face (Y)our Bright Future” is a visual statement
At first sight it’s about spectacle, mesmerizing beauty, colours and light …. but after taking a closer look the object will hopefully touch deeply... confront even.
Since years we design “acrylic mirror products and installations”. We take care to generate as little leftover material as possible during the production process. We have collected the parts of acrylic we could not re-use anymore and sorted these for months to be able to build a big, colourful, mirror globe - a sort of giant “disco-ball” representing earth. Colourful light reflections from the slowly rotating object invites the visitor to come to have a closer look.
On many fragments on the sphere will be small engraved QR codes …. scanning these, through the linked URL, visitors will be confronted with a fact/story at that location.
