“If you look at your surroundings, almost everything seems static. If you look at nature, you see everything is moving—in constant transition, evolution. We foresee a future of living environments that breathe; moving, fluid, interactive matter, like a responsive.” —Martens & Visser

 

Martens & Visser have donated ECHO, a one-of-a-kind, light-blue colored mirror test. The sample is part of an ongoing series by the same name, which launched in 2018 and was included in the Dutch Invertuals exhibition, The Circle, at Salone del Mobile 2019. This unique piece measures 12 x 8.5 cm. It is signed on the back.

 

The designers explain, "As a rule, a mirror reflects its surroundings and copies what we see as reality. In contrast, ECHO mirrors create a new image that transforms reality. Mirror fragments reflect their surroundings and create a distorted image of what we expect."

 

Michiel Martens and Jetske Visser are an artist duo based in Eindhoven.The studio plays with materials and digital techniques to evoke surprise and wonder, and their work explores the themes of movement and transformation, directly inspired by nature.

 

The designers are both graduates of Design Academy Eindhoven. They take on commissions as well as self-initiated projects and work with a range of companies, academies, design studios, private collectors, and exhibition spaces, ranging from CitizenM, Rossana Orlandi, and Luxaflex to NEMO Science Museum, Nanjing University, and the Rijksmuseum Twenthe, among many others.
