French architect and artist Emmanuelle Moureaux unveiled a vibrant, seemingly infinite room in Tokyo to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Bulgari’s iconic coiled jewelry designs. The 50th work in the artist’s 100 colors series (previously), “SERPENTI” reflects timelessness and eternity through elaborate repetition and eternity through elaborate repetition, gradient hues, and a mirrors that transform a single corridor into a never-ending view.

Reflecting the brand’s roots in Rome, Moureaux installed more than 347,000 Roman numerals from 1 to 100—or I to C—onto 100 large, transparent panels, which are cut out in the middle so visitors can walk inside. The numerals are meticulously laid out on a grid to create an endless effect, increasing and changing color the further one ventures into the artwork.
