'feuille blanche' by Christian Horisberger

Just over a week ago, we had a chance to attend a vernissage of a diminutive, yet undeniably inspiring, exhibition surveying the work of 20 young contemporary Swiss designers organised by

Sachenmachen.ch. Entitled ‘feuille blanche’ – French for ‘blank page’ – the show focused on the very first, preliminary stage of a creative process and a variety of approaches adopted by each of the designers.

 

Working methods, which differ among various creative disciplines, have been juxtaposed with each other thus revealing a highly-imaginative, conceptual, almost artistic aspect of industrial design. A large, rectangular 40x50cm wooden board, the said feuille blanche, served as a focal point of the show, onto which each of the exhibiting designers has projected their work in a very individual, unique manner.

'Podium occasional table' by Nicolas Le Moigne

As part of the Design On/Site program at this year’s edition of Design Miami/ Basel, Berlin-based HELMRINDERKNECHT contemporary design gallery has presented a solo exhibition dedicated to the Swiss designer Nicolas Le Moigne and his latest collection of furniture. Entitled ‘Podium’, the series stems from Le Moigne’s ‘observations of the customary forms of presenting art and design by galleries and museums’, and comprises six limited-edition designs which include: a hand-blown glass lamp, a hand-polished granite bowl, a varnished-oak shelf and table, an occasional table which has been developed in cooper and a series of three enamelled ceramic vases. Accordingly, each of the pieces encompasses a white wooden platform which, in the words of the designer; ‘results in the object gaining its aesthetics and functional completeness.’

'Meshlamp' by Werner Aisslinger

'Meshlamp', 2009, Edition of 10 + 1, by Werner Aisslinger

The HELMRINDERKNECHT contemporary design gallery in Berlin recently opened their new exhibition VASE vs. VASES. 15 international designers and artists, among them Alfredo Häberli, Oskar Diaz, Werner Aisslinger and Martí Guixé, have been invited to show their contemporary interpretations of this commodity item. The exhibition is open until 09 January 2010.

One of my favourite pieces is the work by Werner Aisslinger. To produce the vase, a specially crafted mould in the form of a bag and made out of fibre glass is filled with liquid glass and blown into a cylindrical wooden form. The mesh leaves its print in an uncontrollable process of dilation in the glass and makes each of the mesh lamp stands unique in its form and structure of surface. Each object is a unique piece. The techniques were developed in cooperation with the Centre for Glass CIAV Centre International D’Art Verrier, Meisenthal (France).

'Lineas' by Alfredo Häberli

'Lineas' 2007, Edition 5 of each, by Alfredo Häberli

Alfredo Häberli designed a series or family of three vases made of pure glass, each individually banded with colored rubber bands which seem to hold the glass together, but are simply an instrument to divide the vase aperture in order to present single flowers or bouquets in the very same vase.

Objet mélancolique No 1 (vase), 2009, Edition of 6+1 by Frédéric Dedelley

Objet mélancolique No 1, 2009, Edition of 6+1 by Frédéric Dedelley

In Dedelley´s vase the production process and the material are part of the design. The imperfection of an archaic production process (sand casting) and a good portion of fortuitousness due to his choice of material (Tombac, light alloy brass / a mixture of bronze and brass) determine the final shape of the vase. Small imperfections in shape, a vivid and accidental color and the rare quality of the surface provide the unique and outstanding beauty and distinctive character of this vase.
