MATERIAL LUST ANNEX, LES, NY 2016
DERMA is a collaboration with artists TO DØDSFALL, whose hand-woven textiles take shape on floor looms in Brooklyn.
MATERIAL LUST is redefining the concept of celebrating a Total Work of Art through an experimental space, the ANNEX. Host to an evolving series of installations, the ANNEX will showcase their comprehensive body of work—including a provocative approach to interiors and new collections. PDF
Separating from the angularity that defined much of their early work MATERIAL LUST's upholstered - PEAK COLLECTION - marries traditional production methods with Surrealist shapes.
Borrowing from the eccentricities of the human body—growths and scarring among them—the DERMA collection is an exploration in material and surface manipulation.
FICTIONAL FURNITURE explores a fascination with development and design, striving to create “subconscious” heirlooms by injecting high design into the minds of children. With an influence rooted in the surreal, a gender-neutral monochromatic palette, each piece transcends the playroom and the home to make a bold statement about the sweet fierceness of childhood throughout the ages.
By combining simple technique with a synthesis of locally sourced and found materials (including rope, recycled punk t-shirts, calf leather, and core-spun alpaca), the DERMA collection subs the order normally found in woven structure for meandering lines, malformed textures, and a sea of multitudinous blacks.
LEATHER LANDSCAPE I, 2016
OIL ON CANVAS
The first of the LEATHER LANDSCAPE series abstracting leather and exploring its surfaces as suggestion of terrain or environment.
Primal layered tassels woven by TO DØDSFALL in collaboration with MATERIAL LUST. A collection of materials, interconnected, woven into a series of strands determining fate. The history is held inside the threads and layers of threads, making Bö possible.
Bö is in a constant stage of momentum, not set in stone; your choices and actions are constantly modifying it. Encompassing gravity and cause an effect, Bö responds to the world around it, continuously weaving a web of pathways to possible outcomes that are influenced by actions that have already taken place.
TRADITIONAL METHODS hand sewn suede pleats, 8 way hand tied springs and horse hair make up the PEAK CHAIR.
