Matryoshka, babushka, nesting doll. The classical beloved kitsch souvenir goes by many names. With the Mabu concept I wanted to emphasize the layers by stripping matryoshka from decorations and to play with expectations.
Everybody knows that under each layer of matryoshka there is a new layer. What it looks like, that's the unknown. Mabu shows all layers at once but still holds a surprise. Subtractive colour theory is beautifully demonstrated with red, green and blue layers of Mabu. Dark colorless glass is in fact red which is simply filtered through the outer layers.
