Our friends from Cosentino together with ANARCHITECT will have an installation that seems super interesting. It is called Context Reflections. Built using the first carbon-neutral surface collection from Cosentino (Yey! The materials we need in our life), the installation will invite visitors to pause and discover the intriguing play of penetrated light created via a naturally occurring optical phenomenon.

The self-operating, low-tech installation drives inspiration from the principles of ‘Camera Obscura’ of why we see and what we see. Our eyes work in the same way and our brain re-processes the inverted image projected onto our retina to construct the perception of the world as we know it. The concept raises awareness and creates an opportunity for introspective contemplation, asking observers to further question the importance of natural light, the environment, social behavior, and the responsibility to preserve and behold all that is important.


Also, on the 11th of November at 18.00 Cosentino is hosting our admired Janaika from Urban Nest, one of our designers part of Goshopia’s Home section. She will be talking about Dutch Design. If it is a topic you would love to know more about, join the talk. She is a walking encyclopedia on the topic. Check the selection of sustainable home decor & furniture pieces here.
