A Wrecked Luxury Car Built From Over 12,000 Reflective Steel Parts – Design You Trust

A Wrecked Luxury Car Built From Over 12,000 Reflective Steel Parts


Jordan Griska

Reflecting its surroundings with a splintered and imperfect view is Jordan Griska‘s 2016 sculpture Wreck, a non-functional model of a Mercedes Benz S550 made entirely from reflective stainless steel.

The piece, which is composed of nearly 12,000 individual parts, is meant to highlight both luxury and mortality from a removed perspective. While researching the work Griska referenced Andy Warhol’s series of car crash prints, connecting the sterility of his work’s stainless steel to that of a lithoprint.
