Gallery ALL presents the MAD Martian Collection at DesignMiami/2017. Designed by Ma Yansong, founder and principal partner of MAD Architects, the contoured forms of the furniture pieces recall elements of natural, albeit foreign, extra-terrestrial environments. The collection comprises seven pieces and is finished in a fluid, highly reflective metallic skin that suggests the inherent ability of the designs to respond to their changing environments, while expressing a nostalgia for utility and human culture. They represent an exercise in interpreting MAD’s Shanshui City philosophy in the context of a science fiction narrative.
The MAD Martian collection is part of an ongoing series of in-house commissions by curation-led Los Angeles and Beijing-based Gallery ALL. It is the first collection of furniture designed by Ma Yansong.
Exhibited at DesignMiami/ from December 6-10, 2017
Location: Meridian Avenue & 19th Street, adjacent to the Miami Beach Convention Center, Miami Beach, USA
