six standalone items combines sculpture, artwork and design
“Nothing is static, every thing is in a state of flux, shifting, generally imperceptibly, generally cataclysmically and in life as with the Carbon Assortment our perceptions rely upon the angle from which we’re viewing from.” – Adam Courtroom, OKHA Artistic Director.
In line with the enquiring design philosophy of OKHA, the Carbon Assortment includes six objects which problem preconceptions of construction, magnificence and imagined realities: Black Rain, Excessive Voltage, Legislation & Dysfunction, Mondo, Rock Sculpture & Omega.
These six designs convey into query aesthetic conformity and the presupposed want for order and equi-balance. Opposite to the accepted norms of steadiness and symmetry, these designs enjoy asymmetry and a non-conformist provocation the place type is unpredictable, non-uniform and wonder a multi-lingual dialogue between thoughts and coronary heart.
The elegant Mondo Espresso desk is a paradoxical puzzle. The seemingly discordant composition of vertical and horizontal wafer-thin metal profiles fuses collectively to create two completely concentric and symmetrical squares. The vertical helps are diametrically opposed solely visually revealing one pair of helps at a time. It’s steadiness and imbalance, random and systematic.
CHANTEL Woodman’s Rock Sculptures are pure sculptural works which reiterate the randomisation (or maybe intuitive) association of the side evident all through the gathering. Rock Sculptures evoke fossilised crystal formations, they remind us of the structural order and dysfunction embedded in nature.
Equally, every new perspective of Legislation and Dysfunction reveals sudden proportional and compositional adjustments. When seen from above the three stainless-steel legs and drum-shaped shade type a balanced and harmonious encircled triangle with a likeness to the common modeling buildings of fractals and components in good orbit. In profile Legislation and Dysfunction surprises and confuses because the three vertical flanges of the bottom jut out at seemingly disproportionate and irregular angles.
Excessive Voltage replicates the type of a pylon, its perforated lamp shade texturing and filtering gentle. Powder coated metal bars run diagonally and type supportive beams. As one strikes across the lamp, a second set of bars turns into seen, cross etching the primary. As with all of the designs within the Carbon Assortment, black is the chosen color, the emphasis being on pure type, graphic expressionism and absolute values.
Presumably essentially the most profound work within the Carbon Assortment is Black Rain. A mirror fairly not like some other, multifaceted recessed and prolonged shafts of mirror replicate sculpted and shifting tectonic plates and evoke shafts of harsh winter BLACK RAIN.
The sixth factor within the Carbon Assortment is the Omega V console. Vertical traces carved right into a carbon black end reference a mantra of meditative minimalism. The stable oak timber body and stepped stable brass legs pay homage to the architectural inspiration of Artwork Deco.
