COLLECTIVE DESIGN, NEW YORK 2017May 3, 2017 2:13 pm
Fredrikson Stallard will exhibit a showcase of new work including a cabinet from the Montage collection and tables from the Antarctica collection at solo presentation with David Gill Gallery. Both collections highlight the continuim of binaries surrounding the practice: digital/analogue, synthetic/natural handmade/machined, function/form and how by finding a balance Fredrikson Stallard have managed to achieve otherworldly iconic designs.
The collections continue to explore materials in unexpected ways and often start to take form in physically archaic ways: ‘crumbling cardboard together found on the streets of London, ripping apart polyurethane foam, hacking away a block of ice’.
These creations then collaborate with technology to create objects which are able to be both brutal and soft at the same time. The exhibit will also feature some familiar pieces, a version of the celebrated Species will take centre stage and the highly coveted Crush table has been redesigned into a functional desk.
