The result of the inaugural collaboration between Barcelona's Marset, Berlin's Mashallah design studio, and master ceramicist Xavier Mañosa, Pleat Box is a deceptive sleight-of-hand. Though it looks like cloth, its material is handcrafted ceramic. Mashallah design studio digitally rendered creased cloth using 3D computer models, and then ceramicist Mañosa cast Pleat Box in his workshop. The resulting pendant is "sculptural in nature and its design highlights the dichotomy between appearance and composition."
