Cascade Coil Stand – DesignEx 2009 – IDEA 2020

Cascade Coil Stand – DesignEx 2009

The Cascade Coil stand designed for DesignEx 2009 uses gold mirror finishes to exaggerate the size of the small stand, challenging the idea of weightlessness and scale and creating a magical world of reflection and illusion. Mirrored discs suspended within layered curtains of shimmering mesh create the illusion of a floating gold sphere. Light from the glowing floor magnifies the intensity of the gold as it reflects and refracts the light from its surrounds, expressing the strong, yet lightweight, transparent nature of the sophisticated woven wire mesh product. Mirrored Gold and its amplified forms are suggestive of quality, engendering a confidence in the product.
