Our world is cluttered with stuff, how would the world look like a few thousand years from now?
Overgrown is a series of chandeliers and candelabra that appear to be relics from that desolate flooded world where the influence of time is key.
A theme that’s intertwined with Sturkenboom’s oeuvre.
Atelier Mark Sturkenboom designed a fluid, based on minerals, which allows objects to grow crystals over a period of time.
He reclaimed antique French chandeliers and candelabra and created the perfect conditions to set a hyper-evolution in motion where every object grows out to be a unique piece, a modern interpretation of a crystal chandelier. These pieces are part of Sturkenboom’s ongoing fascination of the influence that hyper-deterioration has on modern life, glimpsing in the future.
