INDEX OF WORK
MMXVII - MMXVIII
experimental phase between phases
DERMA was created for the Material Lust ANNEX in collaboration with artists ToDødsfall, whose hand-woven textiles take shape on floor looms in Brooklyn. 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 series subs the order normally found in woven structure for meandering lines, malformed textures, and a sea of multitudinous blacks. The primal layered tassels are a collection of materials, interconnected, woven into a series of strands determining fate.
Unveiled at VoltaNY 2015 the Vanishing twin chair is a rebirth of the Pagan chair released in 2014. The vanishing twin chair was a part of an installation that featured a daily cycle of ritual seating arrangements interacting with the gallery booths surrounding.
Separating from the angularity that defined much of their early work, Material Lust's upholstered Peak collection marries traditional production methods with rounded, Surrealist shapes. Comprised of an oxblood sofa and bone-colored chair, these highly tailored pieces are both atypical and exceedingly adaptable, designed to envelop the body in forms at once soft and substantial, feminine and forceful.
FICTIONAL FURNITURE explored 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.
MMXIV - MMXV
The GEOMETRY IS GOD collection was driven by a fascination with Pagan and Alchemical symbolism and ancient geometries. With this series, we attempted to reinterpret these markings without losing the potency of their primary language. The goal was to make furniture that is symbolically dense, and as a result the collection could be described as functional sculpture.
