Material Love

During our days at 100% London we appreciated the work of decorative artist Yura Kim, she presented a series of lamps but what strike our attention weren't the lamp themselves but the technique she used for producing them.

Inspired in the natural textures of bird nests, feathers and shadows created by light coming through open structures she explores the visual and physical capacities of resins. She wouldn't reveal the details of her technique but our guess is that she draws the nature inspired patterns into some kind of inflatable balloon that is later deflated, once the resin has solidified. 
 The textural and physical qualities of the outcome material, which is flexible and extremely lightweight, are pretty inspiring for us designers with an industrial mindset.

  • Interview: Eugeni Quitllet
    When we first saw his name close to that of Philippe Starck we googled, with no luck. There was no human trace of Eugeni Quitllet and we thought, for a brief moment, that he could be an invention, some sort of imaginary alter ego created by his famously provocative partner. But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
