REDESIGN HOME-TOOLS

Why is it that the design of lighting gets all the attention whereas the design of the switches seems to lag behind? This feeling of amazement when it came to the design of wall-mounted light switches was one of the reasons to redesign these objects in which you can simply consider how much fun it is to press, turn and pull things.

HARDCORE MULTIFUNCTIONALITY: THE STONE KITCHEN

In times gone by, stone was a valued mainstay in the kitchen. Now Céline Gabathuler once again opens our eyes to its merits. The shape of her stone Knife Sharpener ensures that you hold the knife at the right angle during sharpening. Working with a whetstone also brings us back in touch with raw materials, which are increasingly rare in modern domestic spaces. Further impressed by the physical properties of stone, Céline went on to create a limestone hot stone, a marble cooler and a natural mineral water filter of Valser Quartzite. Each piece presents stone as a precious and everlasting resource.

DUST

House dust is commonly perceived as dirty, intrusive and repulsive. We know it as a fine grey dry powder consisting of tiny particles and waste matter collecting on surfaces or carried in the air. It is often associated with unkempt and neglected environments, whereas a clean environment is considered as civilised and proper. ‘Dust Matters’ aims to re-evaluate this ‘dirt’, and convey the value of dust as an indicator of our environment, showing how it reflects our daily life and the trace of our journey through the world.

Focusing on an individual’s private sphere, I have collected samples of dust from the domestic home. Observing the different inherent components, I have experimented with the dust samples as a ceramic ‘glaze’, creating a range of bespoke vessels that display the different comparative environments, and ultimately tell a story of their origin location.

MATERIAL ILLUSIONS

The project Material Illusions brings together a collection of materials which all resemble an aesthetic that we know from nature. Hyper common, man-made materials which are representative of our urban idendity served hereby as a material library. The waste of these materials was seen as a starting point „as a new raw material“. By undoing its previous life and through re-engineering them by applying a series of processes, craft aswell as industrial, these materials could be brought back to a natural aesthetic.

LIVING MATERIAL

Living Material is a project exploring in a new design method to reutilize the most basic natural material. The aim of this project was to find out the potential of the material and visualize the beauty of the nature. By using different materials to mixed with twigs and branches in achieving many unpredictable outcomes but also presents a very different contrast between the each material. It is also a big challenge by using twigs and branches into another industrial application. The collection searches for a new application beyond conventional categories, although the experiment outcomes look very dedicated, but it does not absence any functionality and durability.

RAINBOW PROJECTS

PROJECT ONE : Solace is a cinematic installation that explores the mental process and physical activity of seeing. At regular intervals a handcrafted apparatus creates a monumental soap film as a spatial intervention. Through precise lighting the inner movement of the soap film is revealed, showing a turbulent choreography of iridescent color and fluid motion. www.nickyassmann.net

PROJECT TWO : Colors And The Kids launched their own scarf collection just because they wanted to. Manufactured in delicate lightweight cotton and digitally printed, each scarf measures 130 cm by 130 cm. www.catk.de

ERIN O’KEEFE

“I am visual artist and an architect, and my work is informed by both of these disciplines. My background in architecture is the underpinning for my art practice, providing my first sustained exposure to the issues and questions that I explore in my photographs. As a photographer, I am interested in the layer of distortion and misapprehension introduced by the camera as it translates three dimensional form and space into two dimensional image. In architecture there is a similar dissonance, as one attempts to describe concrete dynamic conditions with tools that are inherently abstract, negotiating between drawing, model and the potently absent building.”

THE NEW POSTFOSSIL

Project: One Minute Ago by Atelier Biagetti
www.biagetti.net

Alberto Biagetti revisits objects of everyday use to bestow a new expressiveness on them. One Minute Ago is a collection of Design and Art presented at the Galleria Riccardo Crespi during Milan Design Week 2013. In their “different way of thinking”, both tend to bring about meetings between things, materials and spheres of research that appear distant in character or remote in time. Their approach is at once analytical and imaginative.

Project: Cloud Sasa by Clemens Winkler
www.clemenswinkler.com

Clemens Winkler´s work explores how traditional, high-tech and speculative materials can be used to create new human experiences. Even if many of the works have a strong component in experimental science and technology, they also involve cultural meanings, new sensations and exploratory participations.

Project: Lamia by Yukihiro Kaneuchi
www.yukihirokaneuchi.com

Objects with a specific function, which we now refer to as products, have been in existence since the hand axe was first created around 2.6 million years ago. With the world’s current affairs dominated by financial crisis, energy problems and speedy technological advances, the incessant consumption of products is easily forgotten. We need to reconsider the value and role of products to avoid over-saturation, decreasing quality and negative environmental impacts. This collection provides commentary in the form of poetry, an attempt to describe the essence of products and to appeal to the humanity we have lost.

LETS MOVE ?

The team of Andreas Fuhrimann and Gabrielle Hächler created completely unique project that blends the rich and calm landscape of lake and hills with pinewood construction on concrete platform, that provides access to the tower from the water and the shore. That structural form anchors the building close to the lakeshore. Alas, the building is used only several weeks in summer during rowing regattas that take place on the lake, but nonetheless we find that enigmatic sculpture-like house extremely inviting.

GOOD LUCK

Good Luck is a personal research by Csilla Klenyánszki for balance and the interpretation of it. The (simple) images of the series try to show the moment of balance, where almost everything is perfect and still. As this moment is really fragile, concentration but also a little bit of luck is necessary.

CHRISTIAN CAPURRO

With the amount of images that reach us every day, I can imagine that you might feel yourself, as an artist, occasionally a bit hopeless. Is the world waiting for more images? And what can we still add in the storm of images? Australian artist Christian Capurro should also felt a bit like that. Instead of making images; he erases them. He said that it is perhaps more a psychological thing. Before making a new image, he first clears an existing image. That way he has the feeling that he made room for a new one..

WHO IS THE DREAMMACHINE?

The collection ‘Who is the dreammachine?’ is the search for the influence of the interaction between human beings and space. What happens in the space between space and human kind? How does our surrounding influence our mood, our actions, experience and behaviour? What can we hide and what can we reveal? The woman of my collection is both female and male. It is more about being a being by discovering and uncovering different parts of the body.

Silhouettes are cut in two pieces and put together again. Everything is turning around or moving to one direction. As if the person is twisted by its own personality and personal space.
