Some more highlights from LDF
Sarfatti at Flos, plus Urquiola and Front
We stopped into Flos to check out their Gino Sarfatti show, and were pleasantly surprised to also stumble upon a couple of tables by Patricia Urquiola and poufs by Front, that called to mind grazing animals.
Flos's show "Re-lighting Gino Sarfatti" showcased a selection of Sarfatti's lighting pieces that the gallery had recreated adopting modern technologies—such as the incorporation of LED lights in an unobtrusive fashion—while retaining the sophisticated looks of the original designs.
Muller Van Severen at Viaduct
A little later, we checked out the Muller Van Severen show at Viaduct, presenting a sleek furniture collaboration between photographer Fien Muller and sculptor Hannes Van Severen. We loved the pair’s leather and steel pieces, especially the Duo Seat + Lamp and Crossed Double Seat.
Made by WORKS
Last but not least, we hit Made by WORKS, a collective of recent RCA grads formed in 2012. The standouts included the Moonrise necklace and bracelets by Ejing Zhang (some of her work was included on the blog recently in our The Royal College of Art post), Dafi Reis Doron's Square Stools, Lola Lely’s Potluck Stools, and Jungin Lee’s salt-based Flamingo furniture.
So much to see, so little time!
