Unknown shell


The piece resemble a conglomeration of voluptuous female bodies and celebrate the wholeness of woman – a fantasy that has been blended from all the shapes that ever touched the hands or heart of a man. The entrance is like a mouth which you can climb into. Diving into the unknown, you land in the softness of the womb, feeling both like a child and like a man becoming one with his lover. After sharing this utmost intimate experience, there is no way back. Feeling like a different person your only option is to crawl out through a little tunnel at the bottom.

Designed for the Triennale Museum of Design in Milan (IT) for the exhibition Kama, Sex and Design.
