Kristin Victoria Barron, a interior designer who founded the company KRIEST in 2005, recently launched a fascinating collection of classical, material-driven small scale sculptures and lighting inspired by the ‘aether element’, or dream world. Barron was influenced by both mythical archetypes and her own dreams to create the interesting collection. By honing her sculptural craft through mentor Vladimir Rodin, celebrated jeweler and painter whose work for Kieselstein-Cord is in the permanent collections of the Louvre and Metropolitan Museum of Art, Barron was able to create a unique collection of objects that act both functional and is aesthetically appealing. Barron crafted her debut collection in three categories: vessels, objects and lighting. read more…

To celebrate the fact that the first Land Rover Defender was produced 65 years ago, Studio Job was asked to take this 4×4 in hand. In their own way, they have created an ode to the vehicle that makes many of us dream of adventures. Eventually, it has turned out to be more than simply a revised or upgraded vehicle. The result is a sculpture that questions escapism, power relationships and above all Studio Job’s own work. “Designing a car is the same as when, as a designer, you’re sometimes given the chance to redefine a hotel: it’s a higher goal. You don’t get such important commissions every day,” says Job Smeets, founder of Studio Job. “On top of that, Defender is an emotionally charged icon. We’ve approached that golden carriage in our own way, maybe not so much from the angle of this one car but rather from the phenomenon of the holy cow in general.” read more…

On the 16th of November the exhibition Nature Rewired has opened at Museum Het Valkhof in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. The exhibition showcases the fascinating creations of Dutch artist Christiaan Zwanikken. The installations of the artist, who lives and works in Portugal and the Netherlands, are hybrids of skulls and bones from nature and robotics from the hands of the artist, which are computer-controlled mechanism creating the moving dynamic within the works. Through his creations Zwanikken shares his vision on the future of man and nature, which is both confrontational and compelling. read more…

Our friends at Gallery 33 opened a very interesting new exhibition named Feathers on the 25th of October. The multidisciplinary exhibition has dinosaurs as its main theme, resulting from the everlasting dinosaur phase which the Gallery 33 crew never outgrew. And with the popular opinion amongst palaeontologists nowadays that modern birds are considered to be the only surviving dinosaurs, as some of them had feathers in some way, shape or form; the exhibition was named Feathers. read more…

We love the story of Ed Drew. The Brooklyn-born serves in the California Air National Guard as a defensive heavy weapons and tactics specialist on Combat Search and Rescue special operations helicopters. He has moved from New York City and currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, where Drew, beside his work for the Air Nation Guard attends San Francisco Art Institute full time, pursuing a BFA in Sculpture with a minor in Photography. The contrast of attending art school and his military job gives him a unique perspective and interesting opportunities to create work. His most recent body of work focuses on USAF combat search and rescue. read more…

We really like the 5th issue of Modern Matter which was created around the concept of stellar. This is a homonym for its cover star, Stella Tennant on the first place, but is also a word to describe her. ‘The interior space of a magazine is defined, by and large, by its writers, its artists and its photographers, while the outer space is often defined by a cover model. Here, Stella Tennant, iconic, playful, a born performer, and above all, independent, embodies the interior and the ethos of Modern Matter magazine, in its first truly unisex issue.’ read more…
