South Korean eyewear brand Gentle Monster has transformed its New York City flagship store into an underwater experience entitled “Grand Blue.” The space is inspired by the ocean, and is designed in collaboration with aquarium designer Justin Muir and glass sculptor Ivan Lee Mora. Taking a page from the French film Le Grand Bleu, Gentle Monster’s interpretation of this vision is to represent peace and happiness on the surface of the ocean. Emulating its clashing waves, the installation is constructed from recycled, laminated glass. Also available on view at Gentle Monster is a custom aquarium with 150 gallons in volume, built from cerused oak of gray and black with custom silver banker mesh. “Grand Blue” is on display now until August 31.
