DOSHI LEVIEN - "MY BEAUTIFUL BACKSIDE" AND OTHER STORIES

























"The language that interests me, is that of the hybrid. The visual language
of that cannot be placed or defined. The language that talks about plurality
of global culture an ideas."

JAEUK JUNG - AMBER CHAIR




Jaeuk Junk's Amber Chair conserves a decaying antique chair whilst in turn making a new contemporary
piece of furniture.
"The time that has passed by has a sublime beauty that exceeds the object" explains Jung on his creation.
Layers of time are fossilised within the essence of amber whilst both preserving the object and memories.

MICHAEL CRAIG-MARTIN - ORDINARY OBJECTS & SAARINEN TULIP CHAIR



































Michael Craig-Martin's 'Inhale Yellow'.
Central to his work is the act of drawing and an investigation of line, space and form. His painted objects flicker between foreground and background, between line and image. The everyday objects invariably have a practical use; a drawer to put things in, a chair to be sat on or a shoe awaiting its owner's foot. All suggest a form of imminent human interaction which is forever absent.


PHILIPPE STARCK - MASTERS CHAIR





































'We weren't born just today. There have been masters before us.
The masters chair brings to mind the lines of three great masters and three great masterpieces.
Putting them all together they create a new product, a new project, a reflection on a new society.
Masters is a project in collaboration with Eugeni Quitlet.'
Philippe Starck
