Abet Laminati presents the installation Sugar & Spice which is inspired by the richness of the Golden Age. The designer Carina Riezebos transformed the heyday in which Dutch merchants took back spices and precious fabrics, into an adventurous experience, a world full of colors, materials and textures.
Sugar & Spice was born by collaboration between Carina Riezebos, Blok Plaatmateriaal and Abet Laminati. The artist came up with the sumptuous experience created by Blok in which a mix and match of Abet Laminati’s rich existing HPL Collection. From the color range of Diplos, Riezebos uses shades that refer to the spices and fabrics that Dutch merchants took with them.
The installation is made by three shimmering mouth-blown vases with fluttering collars of HLP in a striped pattern, which represent huge perfume bottles, coming from East Indies, that also play with light, color and reflection
