Inspired by the laminates used by creators of the Alchimia group in the late 1970’s, Lanzavecchia + Wai employs this approach to gold-chrome car wrap and volumes of rudimentary function constructed out of corrugated steel sheets. This is done to purposefully increase their value perception, while concurrently revealing its actual humble materiality.
