London-based United Visual Artists (UVA) has collaborated with MINI for a site-specific installation “Spirit of the City” at A/D/O, the creative space in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The installation will be on view through September 2, 2018.“Spirit of the City” probes the physical and emotional response individuals experience when navigating urban environments. The modular system has a set of gold-mirrored columns in a courtyard in Brooklyn, which spin around to reflect light patterns, visitors, and the surrounding brick walls. “Spirit of the City” was created exclusively for the outdoor courtyard at A/D/O.“Our goal was to create a simple, yet transformative experience that metaphorically and physically reflects the surroundings of A/D/O and New York City at large,” says Matt Clark, Founder of UVA.“Visitors can walk between a series of nine-foot-high (2.74-metre) mirrored columns that rotate to offer changing reflections and refractions. Moving through the installation is intended to be both mesmerizing and disorientating — an experience that UVA likens to exploring Manhattan's built environment of super-tall glass skyscrapers,” reports Dezeen.Since each column has a polished reflective surface, it magnifies the movement of neighboring columns and recruits the surrounding environment — the sun, sky, and Greenpoint’s industrial setting — into the experience of the piece. As day turns to dusk, the piece takes on another personality, illuminated by sodium vapor lamps which reference the unique vibrancy of cities at night.“We built A/D/O to help explore the future of design — because at MINI we believe that design can tip the scales towards a more humane world,” says Esther Bahne, Head of Brand Strategy and Business Innovation at MINI. “‘Spirit of the City’ presents an optimistic vision of a city that reflects and adapts to people’s feelings and desires. A city that energizes you. This is a vision we aim to contribute to with our products and initiatives such as A/D/O,” adds Bahne.Built for designers yet open to all, A/D/O provides a unique environment for creative work while also inviting the public into its 23,000 square-foot space in Greenpoint, Brooklyn to explore the future of design through a range of installations, exhibitions, and events. “Spirit of the City” is on view through September 2, 2018 at A/D/O, 29 Norman Avenue, Greenpoint Brooklyn, NY- USA.http://www.blouinartinfo.com/ Founder Louise Blouin
MANIERA at its Brussels venue has launched the newest furniture set “MANIERA 14 & 17 by PRODUCTORA and Piovenefabi” that will be on view through June 30, 2018.The architectural and design practices Piovenefabi and PRODUCTORA talk about the relation between a city and furniture. In two recent exhibitions in North America, these two practices — one based in Milan and the other in Mexico City — disclosed critical notions regarding the various relations between the two scales.“In the Piovenefabi installation titled ‘Metro,’ which was created for the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial, the architects reinterpret the Milan Metro subway system elements as a series of furniture pieces. Designed by Franco Albini and Franca Helg with the graphic designer Bob Noorda, Italy’s first subway line was inaugurated in 1964 at a time of optimism in post-war Italy. During this project, the first section of which took seven years to complete, collaborations with manufacturers yielded new materials and customized products such as the Pirelli black rubber floor: now ubiquitous, not many know its origin,” says the gallery.“Piovenefabi revisits both the materials and individual elements of the subway network. Collaborating with some of the original manufacturers, the architects produced a screen, a locker, a table made out of Silipol, a colorful stained concrete that was used as wall panels, and a bright red lamp made from the Metro’s curving handrail, which was both a utilitarian device and a graphic way-finding system. The ‘Metro’ series relates what is public and metropolitan in scale to what is private and domestic, creating what the architects refer to as a ‘new domestic landscape’: a reference to the exhibition that introduced radical Italian design to the world at the Museum of Modern Art,” adds the gallery.The gallery says, “In PRODUCTORA’s Columbus Circles’ installation for the inaugural Exhibit Columbus, a series of cylindrical urban furniture was inserted into the city; each piece was site-specific and interacted with its surrounding context. Built out of various local materials, the furniture foregrounded different histories and narratives of the installation environment. For example, a customized terrazzo blended disparate colors of the adjacent materials on the street.”“Whether through a direct intervention in the public spaces of the city with domestically scaled artifacts or by importing and reinterpreting the history and memory of public spaces into the domestic space, both PRODUCTORA and Piovenefabi are able to reveal their larger position towards architecture and the city. They remind us, as did those before them, that architecture falls somewhere between a piece of furniture and a city,” writes the gallery.The exhibition is on view through June 30, 2018 at MANIERA, 27 – 28, Place De La Justice, Brussels- Belgium.For details, visit: http://www.maniera.be/ Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the exhibition.http://www.blouinartinfo.com/ Founder Louise Blouin
