The global innovation company 3M Design has partnered with Matteo Thun to create a pinnacle of reflection, a kaleidoscopic installation that celebrates nature and its influence on meaningful, sustainable solutions. The collaborative project comprises a 14-meter-high wooden tower, which seems to gradually fade into the sky, while on the inside, the structure invites visitors to step into a kaleidoscopic experience of more than 800 dichroic butterflies. Visitors are invited to step into a colourful, experience of light and reflections created by 3M’s dichroic, reflective films in reference to the rare blue morphic butterfly, which inspired the creation of those materials in the first place.
Designer: 3M design and Matteo Thun & Partners
Location: Superstudio, Via Tortona 27
