I think many of you don’t associate water in the luxury world, but anything is possible for Frendi. Water was the theme of Maison’s installation at this year’s Design Miami that took place in early December of the last year. For celebrate the tenth year anniversary of FENDI’s participation at the fair, Rotterdam-based designer Sabine Marcelis has created ten unique fountains made out of cast resin, inspired by ten of the brand’s most iconic symbols and motifs.
From the emblematic FF logo and the timeless design of the Peekaboo bag to timeless fur patterns, Marcelis’ ethereal fountains, collectively titled ‘The Shapes of Water’, embody FENDI’s historical, creative and aesthetic legacy while their innovative construction exemplifies the brand’s virtuosity when it comes to the processing of materials.
Any exhibition about FENDI’s legacy would, of course, be incomplete without a tribute to its iconic FF logo, and indeed Marcelis has designed not one but two fountains that playfully commemorate its brilliant simplicity.
