THE MON­STER IN THE MIR­ROR

Hong Kong Tatler Homes - - EUROCUCINA 2018 - BY MAU­R­IZIO GALANTE AND TAL LANCMAN

De­sign duo Mau­r­izio Galante and Tal Lancman, founders of the de­sign firm In­ter­ware, de­cided to draw on the fear that rises from un­ac­knowl­edged feel­ings within. The Mon­ster in the Mir­ror chal­lenges peo­ple to con­front their fears head-on. “The idea is to make peace with the mon­ster within, so you can live with it,” says Galante.

Part of the in­spi­ra­tion also came from Ja­panese kaiju mon­sters. “Kaiju mon­sters are here to talk about the mis­takes that hu­mans make; they have both good and bad traits,” says Galante.

Both ideas are man­i­fested in a mir­ror fea­tur­ing tri­an­gu­lar scales in pale green and eye­balls in pale pink. “It’s about re­flec­tions and mul­ti­fac­eted con­cepts, telling sev­eral sto­ries at once,” says Lancman.
