SOON AT THE REFUGIUM :: XAVIER MANOSA & MASHALLAH : SCOTCH CLUB

Legend has it that when in 1959 in Aachen, Germany, the now famous Scotch Club had its opening night, the owner – seeing that the patrons were growing bored- asked a journalist to announce the songs as they were played—and that this was the birth of the discotheque as we know it today. The latest collaboration between Xavier Mañosa and Mashallah, the Scotch Club ceramic collection, takes its inspiration from that discotheque, with a design reminiscent of the widely popular revolving disco ball – that in turn immediately also brings that famous Berlin symbol, the Fernsehturm, to mind. The lamp’s 72 faces reflect light in all directions, casting elegant, complex visual patterns. Made from a meticulous and traditional design process, the lamps are fired four times—using glazes specifically developed for Marset—and incorporate warm, high-quality materials, such as gold – strongly reminiscent of Mashallah’s Turkish originsAvailable in white, blue, terracotta, or black ceramic, with brilliant white or gold enamel interiors, the collection includes three sizes of pendant, as well as wall and ceiling models. For Marset Barcelona. Based in Berlin, Mashallah is Hande Akçayl Murat Koçyigit. 2013 (mb)
