About

MAD architects have reinvigorated this favorite of mid-20th century design, the floor-ceiling suspension light. The drooping ridged surface of the PU and stainless steel shade conveys an alien Chrysalis, protecting a creature in a state of metamorphosis. The lights can be ordered in individual units or as a set (mix and match). The suspension lights come in three sizes: large ($5000 each), medium ($4000 each) and small ($3000 each). The lights can be set up in 2 ways: one is floor-to-ceiling (with “tails” in the end), the other is just hanging light set (without the “tails” in the end). The dimension of the three individual sizes are: Small: 4.25” W x 4.84” D x 28.27” H Medium: 4.8” W x 6.46” D x 34” H Large: 6.38” W x 6.89” D x 39.76” H It is made of Polyurethane and it is very lightweight. Please contact us for more information regarding installation, UL Listed options, customization, etc. The MAD Martian collection began with a question: What would the Chinese colonization of a Martian planet look like? This naturally led to more questions such as at what point does survival stop and architecture begin? Once survival is assured, what memory of Earth or love for their new home would these interplanetary colonizers recreate first? The MAD Martian collection is the result of Ma Yansong’s meditation on these issues. Ma is famed for his design philosophy of ‘Shanshui City’, which integrates elements of traditional Chinese landscape design and painting into large-scale urban architecture. The resulting forms are closely tied to elements of the natural environment, conveying both elegant and gnarly lines. With this collection, M continues to employ the Shanshui City design philosophy – putting the contours of the natural environment front and center of the design language – but transplanting it into a science fiction narrative. Ma conceived of the collection as being Noah Beyond The Ark. Timber, used to build the ark, saved the great Old Testament patriarch from the deluge. In MAD Martian, Ma reasoned that in the future, highly advanced materials will catapult those few lucky chosen ones into safe extra-terrestrial environments, beyond the apocalypse. To convey this idea, the first seven pieces in the collection were made using a combination of old and new techniques: advanced machining with hand-finishing and cutting-edge form making finished with artisanal detailing.
