MAD Martian Collection

The furniture collection by MAD Architects features contoured forms and a metallic skin that recall elements of natural, albeit foreign, extra-terrestrial environments.

Gallery All releases the Mad Martian Collection. Designed by Ma Yansong, principal founder of Mad Architects, the collection comprises five pieces: a dining table, a chaise lounge chair, a candelabra, floor-to-ceiling suspension lights, and a console table. The collection is the result of a two-year research and design development process; its contoured forms recall elements of natural, albeit foreign, extra-terrestrial environments.


The Mad Martian collection expands upon the design language of the popular science fiction of the 20th Century. Traces of the 1960s Space Race aesthetic are visible in the suspension lights, whereas the candelabras take their cues from speculations on the “home” of the distant future. As the collection emerged, it was decided that it would be finished in a fluid, highly-reflective metallic skin, suggesting an inherent ability of the pieces to respond to changing environments while expressing a nostalgia for utility and human culture.
