Dutch designer Marcel Wanders brings a poetic approach to industrial metal skins through his partnership with architectural metal design studio, PURE + FREEFORM. The joint venture, named The Chameleon Collection, includes eight new metal exterior finishes that explore a new approach to architectural facades and how they can change throughout the day.
The skins feature geometric patterns that evolve over the course of a day depending on the light, reflections, movement, and where one might be standing, giving a once boring building a jolt of personality. The collection is made up of four types of skins: Sensitive (delicate details and soft tones), Dynamic (edgy with masculine colors), Romantic (organic forms and graceful details), and Luxurious (sophisticated with black and gold details).
Directed by the intensity of the sun, the movement of the clouds, the density of urban humidity and the dance of its reflections, our architectural PURE + FREEFORM skins present an endless symphony of voices, creating an infinite architectural opera that makes us experience our cities every day anew. Architectural subtlety like never before.
