“Synchronization refers to movement; all of my new designs have lots of angles, in this show even more so than my usual,” explains Van der Straeten, who has been represented by Pucci since 2005. “There’s always a dialogue between the pieces, almost something musical, moving from one more massive piece like an armoire to something very light, almost gravity-defying, to something very bold in color.”Among the exhibit’s themes are convex shapes, which appear in the Yoko Mirror, an electric blue mirror crafted of anodized aluminum. Explains the designer, “It’s very industrial, but I use very precise metalwork and an unexpected color.” Also showcased will be origami-inspired consoles and lighting.
