Colony Introduces Conception 02: Nina Cho

As independent creative community Colony continues to share emerging American design and art talents through The Conception Series, they introduced the second exhibition – Nina Cho’s capsule collection of Maung Maung Mirrors as Conception 02.

“Maung Maung is the Korean word for an obscured sense of depth; when a view is so vast that you lose a sense of where it ends. I’m inspired by a sense of endlessness that is presented by mirrors. Beyond reflection, there’s a blurring of space and time that captivates the mind,” Cho explained.

Colony’s program welcomes the community to discover and explore spaces within New York City, while at the same time introducing them to the new work of these spotlight creators. A Detroit-based designer, Cho’s collection of creatively minimal mirrors will be on exhibit at Morris Adjmi Architects at 60 Broad Street, 32nd floor, New York, NY through January 24, 2020. The space features soaring views of the city as a stunning backdrop to the series.
