Reimagining book shelves with curved angles and protrusions, Paul Coudamy designed Volume Serie under the volume-furniture concept. The French architect's new work serves another industry, translating La Prairie's caviar-infused formula into a towering sculpture titled Living Cells.
Three other contemporary artists are involved in creating works for "The Art Of Caviar" exhibition, which marks the 30th anniversary of the Swiss brand's Skin Caviar collection.
The exhibition's centrepiece, Coudamy's Living Cells, was unveiled at this year's Art Basel, then displayed in Paris and New York before coming to Hong Kong's IFC Mall (where it will be from Sept 29 until Oct 1).
