Falling Garden

December 17, 2006

Check out theis amazing “falling garden” by by swiss artists Gerda Steiner and Joerg Lenzlinger.

“The Doge (Mocenigo) needed a church so as to be able to have a monumental tomb built for himself, the church (San Staë) needed a saint so as to be able to be built, the saint (San Eustachio) needed a miracle so as to be pronounced a saint, the miracle needed a stag in order to be seen, and we built the garden for the reindeer. The visitors lie on the bed above the doge’s gravestone, and the garden thinks for them.”

Talking to Mary-Ann from Illu Stration

December 12, 2006

Mary-Ann Williams, the creator behind Illu Stration, was born 1965 in Cape Town, South Africa, studied Fashion-Design, Pattern-Design, Textile-Design, Interior-Design, Interior-Architecture und Hat-Design in Cape Town and Germany and decided to stay in Germany because of Apartheid. In 1984 she started using felts (felting) for fashion and hats. After starting with her own fashion and hats collection she later specialized in the development of textile products in the HIGH END section of interior design. She creates home accessories, bowls, lights, table accessories, kitchen accessories, living accessories, greeting cards, bags, carpets, hats and fashion and she is advising in interior design solutions. Her innovative designs find international interest. She brings structures and 3-dimensionality into the so far known 2-dimensionality.

I went talking to her,

Coxi: What was the biggest influence in your work untill today?

M-Ann: South Africa: You can learn of poor people collecting waste and making something new out of it.

Coxi: Tell me a little bit about your artistic path.

M-Ann:It was stony: I took all obstacles that were laid in my way to build a bridge, my way to success.

Coxi: Were do you get inspiration?

M-Ann: It’s a combination of hard work and what’s happening around me in the world of fashion, art, architecture and everyday living – and a good sense of humor.

Coxi: Designers/Artists you admire?

M-Ann: My Dad, he was real.

Coxi: How is your work environment?

M-Ann: Almost everything is white. Large windows with a nice view all over the town. 40km of forest starting behind my house. Naturally green.

Coxi: What is your favourite piece of art that you have at home? Old or recently bought…

M-Ann: My son – always good for a surprise. You never know what comes next!!

Coxi: Do you think these days people can talk about a global design culture?

M-Ann: There does exist a global design culture. Internet and all the digitalisation of images was a big step towards globalisation. The blogs do the rest.

Coxi: Are you living your ideal lifestyle?

M-Ann: I`m always looking for a new challenge.

Coxi: How would you describe your style of work?

M-Ann: The simple, sensual and poetry of my work makes it more than textile – it`s a state-of-art design that has its own purity of form.

Coxi: Do you have any other job?

M-Ann: My jobs: Fashion – hats – accessories – furniture textiles – interior design – interior decorating – colour planning .

Hella Jongerius

December 4, 2006

Hella Jongerius’ story is told by means of a love for the traditions of things, traditions of making and traditions of dissemination, but also from a highly personal love of the tried and tested. Hella Jongerius’ products make clear in a single gesture that for which many others require an entire story. This derives from the fact that she does not ‘design’ in the classic sense of the word but appropriates and annexes historical forms by personalising them through a simple procedure. All that she adds to these classical objects is a concept that is expressed unambiguously and without fuss. This can be achieved in the fabrication process or, increasingly, through the application of decoration.

Neo-Retro

November 30, 2006

Neo-retro is the keyword for Magali’s creations. Rich in knowledge and artistic sensibility, she can create unexpected synergies between classical styles and modern design. The result is an amazing mix and transformation of the styles and matters that gives this particular characteristic to all Magali Jeambrun’s works of art. These chairs were all picked up at antiques shops, and Magali transformed them…
