Harmonie aus Kontrasten
Das Londoner Designerduo Doshi Levien war der diesjährige Ehrengast der Stockholm Furniture Fair. Wir haben Nipa Doshi und Jonathan Levien in ihrem selbstentworfenen Ausstellungspavillon auf der Messe getroffen.
A new cabinet’s arrival to our collection signed by Cristian Zuzunaga (Barcelona, 1978). An atypical designer with a graphic art profile having a language of it’s own, the key being the pixel which has given him fame and international recognition. He has said that his style is fruit to a dream he had, which is precisely the name given to this piece: Dreams. The cabinet is presented in three versions. A coloured one, black and or white which are all additions to the collection of BD’s “cabinets”. A typology of furniture that was lost toward the end of the last century and which in the last few years, has been recuperated with the same function as always, to be a container, but differentiated in character. Each one is distinct for each project: Multileg (Jaime Hayon), Tout Va Bien (Antoine et Manuel), Free Port (Martí Guixé), Shanty (Doshi Levien). Few pieces allow for interventions with such personality without depleting the function for which they have been created. They convert into sculptures for the lounge area of a home, or the foyer of a hotel.
