VIVID Gallery at Design Miami / Basel
June 8 - 13,
VIVID Gallery presented
in Basel at the Design Miami / Basel fair the 3 big names in Design Art:
Atelier van Lieshout
After having a solo
exhibition in 2004 in Rotterdam, Studio Job is again presenting work for
the VIVID Gallery: two giant-sized models of
domestic objects, Spoon and Candleholder, each entirely clad in 24K white
gold mosaic from Bisazza. These objects are from the collection Silverware
that Job Smeets & Nynke Tynagel designed for Bisazza Limited Editions
The Liquor Master
a figure made out of foam, fiberglass, metal and functioned as a bar cabinet
together with the Fossil Chaise Longue are the unique pieces by Atelier
van Lieshout VIVID proudly presents.
For the 2009 series of furniture, Joep van Lieshout choose the human figure
as starting point. Sculptures have been transformed by adding just a few
items that changed them into furniture pieces. On one side furniture has
been made out of human sculptures (the bodysofa) on the other side prints
of people are used for several pieces (fossils, liquor man). The results
were not designed but the process dictated the outcome of this furniture.
VIVID will show new
work by Jaime Hayon. For the first time Hayon is working with Pyrex glass,
3 spectacular, unique, pieces will be presented alongside a handpainted
ceramic black & white vase covered with 18K golden dots.
Design Miami/ Basel
In its fourth edition, Design Miami/ Basel is moving to Hall 5, a new,
larger location at the heart of the Basel exhibition complex. Just adjacent
to Halls 1 and 2, where Art Basel is held, Hall 5 offers not only more
floor space for the expanding fair, but also a more integrated experience
for the tens of thousands of visitors who come to the city for both Design
Miami/Basel and Art Basel.
Design Miami/ Basel will take place June 8-13, 2009.
