Physical representation of the concept of Elasticity.
Bioplastic Fantastic investigates new types of products and interactions which might emerge from material innovations in the fields of bio- and nanotechnology. It speculates about the future design and use of domestic products made from enzyme-enhanced bioplastics. The concept is based on a recent scientific breakthrough in the synthesis of functioning “biological” cells made from polymers and enzymes.
Seven products provide all nutrients and energy needed for a human to survive. They produce water, vitamins, fibre, sugar, fat, protein and minerals through biological processes, and are powered by artificial photosynthesis.
Like all of Duffy’s designs, the Abyss Table is a conversation piece as much as a functional one. But while previous works play with gravity, this new design is concerned with depth, and creates a geological cross-section as mesmerising as the sea.
¿Obra de arte o mueble? ¿Billetes de 50€ quemados? ¿Realidad o ficción?
Es una pieza única. La escultura funcional más provocadora del momento. Esta mesa nace en colaboración con el artista plástico Alejandro Monge. Es una obra de art-design que invita a reflexionar sobre el significado y el valor del dinero.
Al fin y al cabo un billete es sólo un trozo de papel tintado, que representa una cifra; 20, 50, 100… Un cifra que en sí misma no tiene más valor, que el que nosotros le queremos dar, al tiempo u objeto por el que lo queremos intercambiar.
From his early childhood, Simmonds was fascinated by stone buildings, an affection that flows into his artworks, where stone architecture is used as a central theme. Particularly the medieval architecture, with its striving to get to a new sophistication of space, comes alive in the marble. Simmonds makes a play of architecture and ornamentation on a small scale, but the spaces created give the same feeling as in the buildings themselves; a place to rest, a place to travel with the eye and maybe find a moment of tranquillity. The marble is opened up, and inside is a space within a building that only exists in the viewer’s mind. What you sense is the significance of space.

Anders Krisár is a visual artist from Stockholm, Sweden. Largely an autodidact, Krisár decided to become a visual artist only in his late twenties, and despite having garnered recognition quickly, he remains an outsider. His work — primarily in sculpture and photography — is, for the most part, hermetic, even morbid, playing as it does with casting, molds, and deformation. Krisár has, nonetheless, created in a few short years a poetic, deeply felt body of work.
STOPCYCLE is a series of 25 small scale sculptures, which as an ensemble create a seamless 25 frame animated loop. The work explores changes of form, and sound using repetition through time. The sculptures shapes are organic and layered in form, much like topographical maps. The forms are descriptions of anatomical regions, as well as being formal experiments in geometry and motion. Their shapes are infinitely cycling, beginning anew once they end – they can be interpreted as tangible, shapeshifting clocks.

“The smartly ordered shirts are crisp, classic white until they fall inside the steel cube frames, at which point they take on colour as though the space itself has dyed them.” Oki Sato, nendo
