JCP (The Glass Pagoda)

JCP-BOOK_GIF(2)I wrote various texts and provided names for these hybrid art/interior design objects commissioned by an Italian company. First presented at the Salone del Mobile, Milan Design Week 2017 and in a limited edition book called A Guide to the JCP Universe (selected pages in the GIF above). Collaboration between myself and a large team of furniture, set and graphic designers including CTRLZAK.

See my previous collaboration for this project, Ten Secret Treasures.
