    Industrial prototypes are rarely available, as they contain the ‘DNA’ of an idea which will eventually, with modfication, go into production; industrial prototypes are the first ‘sketch’, embodying the first impulse, the first moment when it was reasonable to make the (costly!) leap from two-dimensional to three-dimensional. Playing with ocular resolution, Urquiola shifts two planes of colored striped glass, so that the ‘resolution’ is off. Through this simple adjustment, a kaleidoscopic effect occurs, creating illusory depth and a visual adventure.
