Invited by Dior Maison, Ma Yansong reinterprets one of Dior’s signature emblems: the Medallion Chair. The work, titled “Meteor,” is unveiled at Palazzo Citterio, on the occasion of Milan Design Week 2021.
Ma’s reimagining of the chair transports this iconic design into the future. Traveling through time, the chair is caught in motion. Recast in monochrome 3d-printed polyurethane, the work reflects ma’s artistic and architectural ethos, blending nature and structure to generate an emotional connection. This imaginative and innovative approach is also emblematic of MAD’s creative practice.
Across scale and typology, Ma transcends time by conceiving works imbued with spiritual resonance from nature. In so doing, Ma animates aesthetic reflections with philosophical explorations of time and space, probing new conceptual horizons to achieve a harmonious balance.
