  • A Wall Grid
    Crisp, clean lines and a satisfying, golden ratio-like play on geometry and precision are the key features of this Wall Grid stocked by London-based studio and shop Present & Correct. The grid comes in two different sizes, large (rounded: 71x30cm) and small (square: 42x30cm). Made from laser-cut smoked oak, they are a beautiful, elegant and characterful […]
  • Alicja Kwade
    Alicja Kwade is increasingly making herself known around the world for mixed-media works, especially installations. For the surprisingly long but aptly named exhibition “Something absent whose presence had been expected”, the Polish artist explores repetition and ruin as main concepts — both elements very much in line with an interesting minimalist sensibility put into action. […]

  • Shopping Bags
    Many designers have used capitalism as a subject for criticism against minimalism. However, conceptual artist Simon Freund has cleverly used minimalism itself to make a turnaround. He told HUH magazine: I think every company should consider what they are doing and why they are doing it. With an installation titled Shopping Bags, the German conceptual artist is […]

  • Éditions 01
    Zé Studio and Ward Roberts combine forces to bring the Éditions 01 series to the masses. Based in Sydney and New York respectively, this collaboration of creative direction and artistic execution is based on a calculated and minimal interpretation of music and film combining. Each piece embodies its own identity; its own response to this […]
  • Roma by Roni Stretch
    Roma is a series of astonishing oil paintings by British artist Roni Stretch that experiment with the limits of perception: Viewing them is akin to adjusting one’s eyes in a darkened room. Images gradually appear as fields of solid colour, seen again from another angle, the same forms recede, swallowed by their backgrounds. The LA-based […]
  • Zimoun & 86 DC-Motors
    Inside an inconspicuous hut, sporting a beautiful rusted red façade, resonates an insistent and fulfilling sound. This is a recognizable set-up for those familiar with Zimoun’s body of work, a true visionary in sound architecture and visual design. A stark white interior hosts 86 dc-motors, a staple of the artists’ work, each one pulling a […]

  • Flood Installation
    Flood installation by Alban Guého has been selected to participate in Paris in the next nuit blanche festival. The theme for this year is the climate echoing the COP 21 to be held in December 2015. A project with a minimalist look focusing on an essential matter for the planet. In recent years many extreme natural phenomena […]
  • Todd Robinson
    Experiments in Natural Philosophy is Australian artist Todd Robinson‘s latest exhibition, having just wrapped up at the Galerie Pompom in Sydney, where large balloon sculptures combine a form of proto-engineering with weird yet wonderful studies in comparative materiality. This new body of work draws on an ongoing series of balloon inspired sculptures featured in his previous exhibitions, which […]
  • A Piscina do Parque Lage
    Imagine taking a stroll through the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro, enjoying breathtaking views of the natural landscape that embraces the city. While visiting the famous Parque Lage you notice an unusual structure inside the central Palace. When you dare to enter the tiny citadel, everything is covered in plastic and overtly orange. You’ve […]

  • Was ist Metaphysik?
    The conflict between what the architect has on his mind and what is actually possible to build will always be a significant factor for pushing the possibilities of new technology and constructions. Fortunately, contemporary professionals can visualize and test their valued creations beforehand with digital tools; sometimes it’s the ideal method to clearly grasp the […]

  • Pierre/Paysage
    Crafted by Canadian artist Karen Zalamea, Pierre/Paysage  (Stone/Landscape in French) is a collection of ten photographic images presenting transformed representations of space. Layers of acetate were cut into different geometric shapes, carefully positioned and lit to create different formal arrangements, alluding to abstract yet quite tangible architectonic, topographic and cartographic silhouettes – at once diaphanous and yet […]
  • Light in Water
    Light in Water is a remarkably beautiful installation developed by Parisian DGT architects, initially four years ago during Milan Design Week, but has now been relaunched in the Éléphant Paname Art and Dance Centre, located in Paris, for its opening event of 2015. Sixteen rings of slotted tubes fitted to the ceiling, with each hole […]
