Taking inspiration from Japanese tea bowls and fish scales, architect Kengo Kuma’s metal screen installation is intended to be an indoor and an outdoor space at once.

The project seeks to create a harmonious relationship between architecture and landscape. While the structure’s thin metal shell looks like it offers little protection from the elements, it is actually lined with a waterproof membrane.

Called Owan, the structure is made from a metal referred to as a “memory alloy”, which means it can be bent into new forms when heated.

Maxéville Design Office by Jean Prouve

A demountable office by French architect Jean Prouvé that was until recently being used as a swingers’ club has been restored for display at Design Miami/Basel.

While other Prouvé creations at the site were destroyed after his departure from the company in 1953, this one remained concealed behind cladding and over time served as the atelier’s design office, a plumber’s office, a restaurant, and finally a swingers’ club called Le Bounty.

The late Zaha Hadid may be best known for her architecture, but her fluid forms also translated into some memorable design objects, which are now the focus of an exhibition during Design Miami/Basel.

The exhibition has been put together by her firm, Zaha Hadid Architects, to commemorate her contribution to the field of design following her unexpected death earlier this year.

The trend has continued at Design Miami/Basel, which is hosting a hulking but hollow stone cube called the Stone Tea House Meditative Alcove by Japanese sculptors Masatoshi Izumi and Koichi Hara.

Armadillo Tea Pavilion by Ron Arad

Another calming space is Israeli designer Ron Arad’s Armadillo Tea Pavilion. Assembled from five moulded wood shells, it resembles the overlapping body armour of an armadillo.

Its components are modular, so it can be configured to suit different spaces, and the shells can be made in a variety of timbers depending on whether it will be used indoors or out.

The Armadillo Tea Pavilion comes from the catalogue of Revolution Precrafted, a company that aims to “democratise high-design and architecture” by providing prefab structures from more than 30 famous designers – including Tom Dixon, Marcel Wanders, Kengo Kuma and Zaha Hadid. It launched its first design at last year’s Design Miami, the sister event of the Basel edition.

METAMORPHOSING METAL FURNITURE SCULPTURES BY JANNE KYTTANEN PRESENTED AT DESIGN MIAMI http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/events-2/metamorphosing-metal-furniture-sculptures-janne-kyttanen-presented-design-miami/ http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/events-2/metamorphosing-metal-furniture-sculptures-janne-kyttanen-presented-design-miami/#comments Tue, 01 Dec 2015 17:06:31 +0000 http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/?p=3006 Exploring and intersecting 3D printing, virtual and augmented reality, that can be the shortly definition of Digital sculptor Janne Kyttanen.

At Design Miami/, gallery ALL unveils the finnish artist’s dynamic ‘metsidian’ — a piece that hovers between the boundaries of sculpture and furniture; an eruption that melds two divergent materials together.

The result is something of an organic volcanic obsidian that transforms into a clean, fluid metal mesh. in creating ‘metsidian’, Kyttanen explored alternative methods for combining paradoxical materials asking himself: ‘If we’re able to use explosion welding to join materials that wouldn’t naturally fuse together – what would happen if we could control this force digitally? What kind of hybrid matter could we create?‘ A compelling metamorphosis in which the impossible becomes reality, ‘metsidian’ is a harmonious union of otherworldly form and everyday function.

Evidence of Kyttanen’s exploration of 3D printing in his creative practice, the ‘avoid stool’ is a copper plated seating object made using the additive manufacturing process to form an intricate, complex diamond structure influenced by lie sphere geometry.

The ‘macedonia tray’ is one of Kyttanen’s signature designs and has been included in the permanent collection at MoMA. Taking its shape from the structures formed by soap bubbles, it is being exhibited at design miami/ in glossy bronze.

Accompanying the ‘avoid stool’ is the ‘avoid chandelier’ — also realized using 3D printing. the circular light fixture similarly has an diamond structure, with an opulent, mirror-finish plated with 24 karat gold.

Janne Kyttanen’s presence at Design Miami/ displays his unique design aesthetic which he draws from forms found in nature and beyond. all works are available in limited editions of eight pieces (plus two artist proofs per edition).
