At the 2019 Milan Design Week, 3M Design and Matteo Thun & Partners present an installation that celebrates nature to inspire meaningful and sustainable design solutions. More than 300,000 designers, architects, journalists and creative professionals curiously explore the latest trends in design.
A Pinnacle of Reflection – how nature inspires a lustrous color experience, displayed at Tortona Superstudio, is the result of a collaboration between the global 3M Design team and renowned Milan-based architect Matteo Thun & Partners. This unique collaboration was driven by the shared values that curiosity and experimentation drive knowledge for problem solving and progress.
Visitors step into a kaleidoscopic colorful experience reflecting the inspiration of the rare blue morphic butterfly behind 3M’s multilayer optical film technology and the transformation from caterpillar to butterfly representing the power of innovation. Spectacular colors are seen throughout the space as light reflects the multilayer films creating an imaginative effect for visitors.
3M Materials displayed at the installation include 3M™ Dichroic and FASARA™ window films, DI-NOC™ architectural films and 3M™ Nomad™ floor mats.
