Kartell chair n.4875 and Louis Ghost chairs, Kartell

We can also recall the success of Kartell, wich made plastics its workhorse proposing it as a valid alternative to glass for its lightness, resistance and cheapness; today this success is still witnessed by one of the wider stand around the Salone del Mobile fair; in this stand the atmosphere that fills you is that of a past yet modern (first successful pieces are the one of the Seventies) and a modern which sometimes remind us the importance of the past (as the famous chair Louis Ghost, with its baroque shapes). Even today, it is enough to take a ride at the Salone del Mobile fair in Milan, or simply at the Fuori Salone (events and exhibitions that animate the entire city of Milan during the design week), to realize that the plastic in all its forms, including PMMA, it is still the unquestioned leader.

Art Exhibition: Sechs Kontrapunkte für 22 Ringe

German artist Susanne Rottenbacher is presenting an amazing art installation at the Teapot gallery in Cologne. The title “Sechs Kontrapunkte für 22 Ringe” means “Six Counterpoints for 22 Rings” and consists of six smaller arrangements, that create a complete “wholeness”. She started to work with light rings two years ago, which were till now single sculptures. The installation is innovative and takes the space of the complete room.

Rottenbachers rings are either made by transparent or semi-transparent plastics, equipped with LED internal lights, which are connected through a wire. Those lights are switching and changing and thus including the component time into the whole sensation, which reminds on early works of Atsuko Tanaka in the 1950ies.

The exhibition will opened yesterday and will continue till February, 18th at the Teapot Gallery, Bonner Str. 60, Cologne  / Germany. Please enjoy and comment your impressions on our blog!
