On the occasion of Milan’s Salone del Mobile, the renowned, family-run textile brand Kvadrat has invited a number of internationally acclaimed designers who, under the guidance of seven curators, were commissioned to reinterpret one of Kvadrat’s most iconic upholstery fabrics, Hallingdal 65, in a modern concept. Among the 32 designers from across Europe, USA and Asia were some of today’s best and brightest talents in product and industrial design such as New Yorker Stephen Burks, Vienna-based Studio mischer’traxler or the Parisian designer Ionna Vautrin, to name just a few while Tord Boontje, Ilse Crawford, Søren Rose, Hans Maier-Aichen, Constance Rubini, Andre Fu and Jeffrey Bernett were appointed as curators. ‘Hallingdal 65’ exhibition was on view between 17 – 22 April on Milan’s Via Luca Beltrami and will now be presented during the ICFF fair in New York (18 – 22 May) in Jil Sander Showroom, 30 Howard Street.

The second solo show of Philippe Malouin at the NextLevel Galerie in Paris is called ‘Demonstration’. The title of the exhibition embodies a unique personality and the fundamental values of the designer. It refers to both the French and the English meanings of the word. Demonstration is the result of the quest to achieve the quasi-scientific balance of an aluminum structure in which the connectors serve as tension points and whose configuration is invariably made up of 45° or 90° angles. Demonstration insists on design free of any superfluous effects, whose only aesthetic value is revealed through a light metallic structure with a great architectural potential.

Philippe Malouin continues in his approach to representing the object in the minimalist manner. Carefully assembled by hand, 5 000 aluminium tubes and 13 different stainless steel connectors provide a foundation for the functional elements.
