THE TALKS

“What I find endlessly inspiring these days is the idea that anything is possible.”

This time I invite you to a link of an interesting interview with Julia Peyton- Jones, an English Curator and Galerist. The interview is talking about how the art scene has evolved in Uk and abroad since the 90s.

It seems that much has happened since Damien Hurst and his companions curated their own exhibition without much fund out of the then existing artistic context. It reminds me of many discussions that took place then in universities and privately held circles between my artist friends, and fellow students. There was a great discussion on how art should be presented, and many people started to open their own studios, apartments for public exhibitions, or went outside guerilla style and hung their art in public spaces. Itreally helped to get art out, together with the emerging street art movement, that started already with graffiti art in the 80s.

BAUHAUS ARCHITECTURE

Whilst our studio works mostly within classical architecture, we do appreciate the openness and clarity of modern architecture, which has its roots in Bauhaus. This period on architecture marked modern space planning and social interaction through architecture forever.

We try to integrate those concepts into our designs, even we do not necessarily copy the bauhaus style.

Since this year marks the 100 anniversary of bauhaus I collected some videos and inspirational images.

In below link to video article one also (if knowing German) gets confronted with the many horrible stories of the original owners and architects, if not fled in time being forced to suicide, or deported and murdered, for their Jewish background, their socialist ideas, and their visions expressed through the Bauhaus schools established during Weimaer Republic before the Nazis took over in Europe.

DATOGRAPH UP/DOWN “LUMEN” BY A. LANGE&SÖHNE


Kayserstudio has been invited to a daytrip for the presentation of A. Lange & Söhne´s the new DATOGRAPH UP/DOWN “Lumen” - a watch that is not only a precise little machine to measure time but an object with a visual presence and unlimited facets depending on the surrounding light. The launch at Solo Office, Cretas, Spain was accompanied by an interesting discussions between architectural and design experts about the links between timepieces, architecture, design and light.

To emphasize the special features of the new timepiece, Dutch designer Sabine Marcelis created a pyramidal-shaped structure that, while allowing to know the time of day, is sensitive to light. Located in the middle of Solo Office’s garden, the piece offers endless nuances and colors influenced by light and by the environment, which it is at the same time modified by them.

After graduating from the Design Academy of Eindhoven in 2011, Marcelis began working as an independent designer within the fields of product, installation and spacial design with a strong focus on materiality. Her work is characterised by pure forms which highlight material properties. Marcelis applies a strong aesthetic point of view to her collaborations with industry specialists. This method of working allows her to intervene in the manufacturing process, using material research and experimentation to achieve new and surprising visual effects for projects both showcased in galleries and commissioned by commercial clients. She considers her designs to be true sensorial experiences and not simple static works: the experience becomes the function, with a refined and unique aesthetic.
