'Malva' by ett la benn

The Berlin based designers of ett la benn will soon be showcasing their lighting series ‘Malva’ at Appel Design Gallery.

The manufacturing process of the lamp shades are inspired by the natural qualities of cellulose and viscose: the objects are generated by the forming of moistened sponge cloth and its subsequent hardening by air drying on a mould.

The design project was preceded by a sort of basic research which addressed the question of whether a design concept developed for a specific object can also be applied in the design of other objects. In this formal aspects such as those occasioned by the technologically defined structure of a design principle play just as crucial a role as the idea of transformation.”app

“The objects currently presented here are the result of a series of designs based on the principle of layering and turning materials. Using the layering technology the designer created a self-contained group of works that has given rise to various design objects. An initial design sculpture took on the inspiring function of muse, from whose design structure a continuous permutation of new forms and objects developed. The designs made with the help of 3D tools were produced with contemporary technologies such as rapid prototyping and by integrating a traditional handcraft technique such as turning. This ‘reconciliation’ of production techniques not only offers new opportunities for designing objects but also provides long-term stimuli for future production processes in industry and handicrafts. This type of work concept also offers new perspectives from an economic point of view. Individual works from the collection stand out for their valuable materials and craftsmanship and as such are conceivable in limited editions, whereas other design objects using the same design scheme can be mass-produced.

'In Loving Memory the Lamborghini Countach'

'In Loving Memory – the Lamborghini Countach'

On the occasion of the DMY Festival in Berlin, the Appel Design Gallery opened two rather different exhibitions. With ‘In Loving Memory the Lamborghini Countach’ the Swiss designer Martin Meier expresses his love to the ‘goddess of all super cars’. Martin applied the design language of the Lamborghini Countach to other design classics – pure styling on almost pure function.

The second exhibition ‘Conceptual Substance’ showcases 9 international designers, all based in Berlin – what they have in common is that they are all doubters, questioners, storytellers and rebels – designers who are trying to relieve themselves from the usual menchanism of industrial design and who are searching for alternatives to what ‘Design’ is today.

Among others there are pieces of Jerszy Seymour, El Ultimo Grito, Bless, osko+deichmann and Judith Seng.

Until 27th June, Appel Design Gallery, Torstrasse 114, 10119 Berlin
