Inigo Manglano-Ovalle has domesticated icebergs, inviting them into two Mies van der Rohe villas in Krefeld, Germany. The houses appear here decorated in matched sets of color photographs of those floating, melting monuments, and identical sculptures based on them. For good measure, the furniture is covered with white cloth: icebergs in the middle of the rooms. The illustrated book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Inigo Manglano-Ovalle: The Krefeld Suite, Museen Haus Lange and Haus Esters, Krefeld, 2005.
