Swim with the mermaids: Enter Atlantis

Welcome to the world of Atlantis, a world of mystery, mermaids and all homeware aesthetically pleasing. 'Mermaids' is the newest promotion project of Dutch designer Marcel Wanders, art director and co founder of Moooi, the Dutch furniture manufacturing company. 

The series of photographs enchant you to dive into the underwater world and swim amongst moooi's designs including 'raimond' by Raimond Puts, 'miyake' by Arihiro Miyake, 'heracleum' by Bertjan Pot and 'dear ingo' by Ron Gilad.

“To be submerged into water is to be in a place free from the constraints of gravity, free to explore a multi- dimensional universe. Here, like Atlantis, the world of Moooi is enveloped in water, fit for discovery. I invite you to join the mermaids in this alternative state of being.” - Wanders

The works will be on show at Moooi's showroom from September 19th-25th : The White Building, Portobello Dock, 555 Harrow Road, London W10 and at the upcoming London Design Festival, so if your planning to drop by make sure to bring you best swimwear; you're  sure to be in for a real treat.
