Carpenters Workshop Gallery, in Paris just launched the first exhibition of the New Year: ‘New Works’ from 21 January until 19 March 2016.
The exhibition features a group show of newest works by Atelier van Lieshout, Andrea Branzi, Nacho Carbonell, Mathieu Lehanneur, Frederik Molenschot, Rick Owens, Wonmin Park and Robert Stadler. These works will be shown in dialogue with new pieces by two artists new to the gallery: Normal Studio and Giacomo Ravagli.

The italian designer Giacomo Ravagli who himself says that he “gives rational shape to the irrational and irregular form” is presenting ‘Lamp Barometro’, which consists of composed copper and rare Italian marble. Normal Studio focus instead, on machinery and industrial aspects of design that can be easily reproduced. Ranging from lighting and tableware to exhibition design and graphics, the duo applies systematic thinking to their design, incorporating parts of one piece into another and fully embracing the idea of functional sculpture. They insist that in order “to make successful industrial design, one has to be humble”, seeking neither the extraordinary nor remarkable.

French designer Mathieu Lehanneur displays a key creation, ‘Les Cordes’. The artist has designed a new edition of the work especially for the gallery, created from glass tubes and LED lights that cleverly resemble suspended rope.


// La Carpenters Workshop Gallery a Parigi ha da pochi giorni inaugurato la prima mostra del nuovo anno: New Works dal 21 Gennaio al 19 Marzo 2016.
L’esposizione mostra lavori di un gruppo di artisti che comprende l’Atelier van Lieshout, Andrea Branzi, Nacho Carbonell, Mathieu Lehanneur, Frederik Molenschot, Rick Owens, Wonmin Park e Robert Stadler. Questi vengono esposti in dialogo con nuovi pezzi di due artisti nuove acquisizioni della galleria: Normal Studio e Giacomo Ravagli.

Il designer italiano Giacomo Ravagli che come lui stesso afferma “dà forma razionale alle forme irrazionali ed irregolari” presenta la lampada Barometro, realizzata in rame e raro marmo italiano. Normal Studio si concentra invece sugli aspetti industriali di quel design che può essere facilmente riprodotto. Spaziando dalla progettazione di lampade e oggetti per la tavola all’exhibition design e alla grafica, il duo applica un pensiero sistematico ai propri progetti, incorporando caratteristiche di uno all’interno dell’altro e abbracciando pienamente l’idea di scultura funzionale. Insistono sull’umiltà come condizione necessaria perché il design abbia successo, rinnegando lo straordinario e l’eccezionale.

Il designer francese Mathieu Lehanneur invece presenta un pezzo chiave, “Les Cordes”. L’artista ha infatti disegnato una nuova edizione di un lampadario appositamente per la galleria, utilizzando tubi di vetro e luci LED che ricordano abilmente delle corde sospese.
