STAGES

July 14th, 2009

STAGES is exhibition initiated by Lance Armstrong and Nike to raise funds and awareness for the fight against cancer. 20 renowned artists produced work inspired by Lance and his fight against cancer. Although I’m very sceptical about the whole cycling sport (or any professional sport for that matter), the cause and the artwork deserve some publicity. The exhibition opens this Friday July 17th at Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris, France.

Here are a few of the artworks:

Coral lamp by Studio Aisslinger

April 23rd, 2009

The Coral lamp by Studio Aisslinger is made of hexagonal felt submodules. It should remind you of a sea life coral structure, but I say it could be a honeycomb too. Sspecially in yellow.

Papier Bags by Saskia Diez

March 2nd, 2009

This collection of bags, called Papier (= paper), was actually designed by Stefan Diez for Saskia Diez, his wife who designs really nice jewelery. They are made from the same material, Tyvek®, as his other bags A1 & A2. It is a synthetic paper made from PE which is extremely tearproof, lightweight, waterproof and recyclable. Like most bags, they become nice after some wear and tear.
