To celebrate the opening of our new store on Kurfürstendamm, Berlin, we invited respected local artist Frank Hülsbömer to create a bespoke installation.
The moving installation uses shards of vintage glass that rotate to create patterns of light on the store’s walls. Frank chose glass pieces from the remains of windows from the former German Democratic Republic (GDR) parliament building Palast der Republik (used during the Cold War period), to offer a connection to Berlin’s multi-faceted history. He also wanted to create a subtle creative reference to the textures Mulberry uses in its design and craft:
“The kinetic installation contrasts a shiny surface with a matt background, similar to the contrast between leather and the metal closure on a Mulberry bag. It’s like a small mirror. It would be flattering if the viewer would take this thought with them every time they glance over the closure on their bag.”
