The mystery obelisk.

Dover Street Market is currently hosting an new interactive project, a collaboration with jewellery designer Hannah Martin, to showcase her new collection "The man who knows everything". The jewellery and the installation are inspired by the mysterious character of an alchemist who appears at different points in time and space. The mystery is reflected in the materials and the design language, bridging ancient past with sci-fi, terrestrial with alien. The polished column is made from black Corian, perfect for this sculpture thanks to its rich finish and seamless construction.

The obelisk is surround by a cage of laser beams, playing with the notion of protection for invaluable pieces of jewellery. However in this installation we invite visitors to play with the lasers, each of which triggers a different alarm-derived electronic sound that are then repeated in a loop to create a mysterious sound scape.
