Mathieu Lehanneur / Liquid Marble

The installation 'Liquid Marble' designed by French designer Mathieu Lehanneur shown during the Milan Design Week 2013. It focuses on the way in which marble, water and light have always come together as an ideal combination. I also love the images of the piece in production, a beautiful piece of work.

Based on the idea of showing ephemeral things - of capturing indistinct, random moments and transforming them into something solid - the project Liquid Marble explores the possibilities of algorithm - based 3D - modelling, in an effort to hold and freeze what usually disappears into vanity.

I hope that, when entering this room, the visitor will experience something that comes closes to what happened to the many characters who opened a magic portal to a forbidden place in so many fairytales. Everything is liquid in this space, evanescent, and yet it is executed in a material that is the most solid imaginable.
