Pink Thing of The Day: Winged Pig Unicorn

This Pink Winged Pig Unicorn (Unipig? Pigicorn?) was spotted inside one of the themed-rooms at midtown’s sweetest attraction, The Candytopia. If memory serves, I recall that this room, located towards the end of the exhibit, is the one where enthusiastic-but-misguided docents threw a cup of paper confetti in my face as I walked through the entrance, completely obliterating the only-half-drunk cocktail in my hand. Huge bummer.

An undeniable showstopper of the 2019 Salon Art + Design show in NYC, the translucent, rainbow-hued Minosse Glass Block Chair remains one of the most breathtaking pieces on the floor. Comprising a range of glass blocks set individually by hand, Minosse recalls ‘the labyrinthine geometries of mythic palaces belonging to ancient civilizations.’

An original design by Milan-based studiopluz, the chair was exhibited by London’s WonderGlass gallery as an integral part of its site-specific Dark Matter installation. Exploring the transformation of matter, sound, cosmic geometry, and light, Dark Matter was created in a collaboration that also included Tokyo-based studio, Curiosity by Gwenael Nicolas.

The throne-like chair pushes the boundaries of glass manipulation, allowing for the piece to represent advancements in color combination with the glass surface used as a white canvas upon which paint is applied by hand. The process is impossible to replicate, thus allowing each piece to celebrate individual authenticity as an integral part of its design resolution.
