Floating Earth Stand by Yan Song Ma


Floating Earth Stand by Yan Song Ma


Donated by Alessi

This beautiful tabletop object is designed by Ma Yan Song, an architect with MAD, the Beijing architecture firm behind Mississauga's Absolute Towers. This piece is part of Alessi's  (Un)Forbidden City project. Its height and sculpturesque shape suggest that it can be used not only as a cake stand but also as a tray or table centrepiece.

Designer: Ma Yan Sang
Manufacturer: Alessi
