Perhaps no one better than Mac Stopa is able to combine architecture, interior design, industrial design, art and fashion into one design discipline. The founder of Massive Design, Stopa specializes in corporate interiors, public spaces and industrial designs. His inspiration stems from his fascination with mathematics and geometry hence the sculptural and modular shapes that define his designs for serial production. Each object allows the user to interact with it and adapt it to the functionality or the character of the space.
Since 2013, he has received over 40 international design awards, including the 2016 Hip Award at the NeoCon in Chicago for the Drum chair he conceived this year for Cappellini.
Drum is a tribute to the hexagonal drum pads from the 80s. The visual impact of geometric configurations turns into the designs of an armchair that can be arranged in a composition game of modular elements to accommodate any seating configuration for large open spaces.
The sculptural forms are multi-padded in polyurethane foam for maximum comfort. The upholstery is of stretch fabric with a 3D print of geometric tessellation pattern in three different variations. Drum is also available in blue, black, turquoise, orange, white as well as in some of the Cappellini fabrics and leathers.
Following the spirit of Cassina in the development of complex projects, the construction of the mirrors has an architectural basis: mirrors that reflect mirrors, mirrors that reflect shadows,mirrors that reflect reality.
Each piece is made up of two mirrors coupled at a 12mm distance: the back of the front mirror is decorated in orange, blue or red so that the back mirror reflects geometric forms, creating two levels, two perspectives, that bring the graphics to life. This complex effect continuously changes depending on one’s position. Like valuable pieces of art work, each mirror is placed in a solid natural or tinted black ash-wood frame with visible joints which highlight their MedaMade wood craftsmanship. Each mirror has its own poetic and evocative name and can be exhibited alone or grouped together for strong artistic impact.
