The Exhibition

The exhibition features works by four different artists. Collin Velkoff presents ‘Ceres N1 Chair’ and ‘Vesta N1 Table Lamp’ from his ‘Foreign Bodies — Arrival’ series, inspired by space missions. Frank Penders exhibits three steel sculptures from his ‘ONE’ series, transforming flat sheets into 3D forms. Linda Weimann showcases pieces from her ‘ELEMENTS’ series, made with gypsum and natural pigments, exploring ornamental order. Rive Roshan displays Form Editions objects, including the ‘Colour Dial Curved Blue’ table and metal panels that disperse light.

The Designers

Collin Velkoff exhibited two works from the second collection of objects in his ‘Foreign Bodies’ series: ‘Ceres N1 Chair’ and ‘Vesta N1 Table Lamp’ from ‘Foreign Bodies — Arrival’. This ongoing series of works is inspired by the satellites, orbiters, and rovers sent into space to analyse the material composition of extraterrestrial bodies.

Frank Penders exhibited three works from his ‘ONE’ series — ‘ONE Round’, ‘ONE Square’ and ‘ONE Ridiculous’. Each piece in the series uses only one flat sheet of steel which is sculpted and bent into 3D form. This motion can be seen in the shape of the pieces, as well as the strength of the steel, creating pieces that combine old forging techniques with modern design.

Linda Weimann exhibited four pieces from her ‘ELEMENTS’ series: L 45, M 26, M 33 and S 43 which are all created using gypsum and natural pigments. The series explores deconstruction of the order behind ornamental language to bring new aspects to both aesthetic and matter in object design.

Rive Roshan showcased three pieces as part of Form Editions. ‘Sand in Motion Slim Bronze’ is part of the Sand in Motion collectible objects that reveal the beauty of natural materials. The ‘Colour Dial Curved Blue Table’ is a contemporary interpretation of the sundial and the ‘Metal Shift Panels’ are a series of six panels that disperse light through their rippled surfaces.
