Step into a Kaleidoscope of Experience created by 3M Design

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.
