Verhoeven Twins

Forever You


Description/

In their Vanitas of Life collection, the Verhoeven Twins push modern technological limits to combine the fantastical with the practical.

The borosilicate glass bubbles look as though they might pop any second, but in actual fact are made with the help of robotics to result in a complex, and therefore much stronger, structure.

The Twins settled on the bubble motif after seeing Soap Bubbles (1734), a painting by the 18th century French artist Chardin. Then, as now, bubbles allude to the transience of life, a reminder of our fragile mortality.


Verhoeven Twins

"Verhoeven Twins work combines the fantastic with the practical: it is function and form turned into mystical narrative, where the supple feather-light impressions of dreams become objects that we can see, touch and most importantly use in our every-day lives. The Verhoeven Twins graduated from Eindhoven Design Academy in 2004. Since then, Verhoeven’s work has been exhibited internationally, with recent group exhibitions including Against the Grain: Wood in Contemporary Art, Craft and Design, at the Mind Museum, North Carolina which travelled to the Museum of Arts and Design, New York (2013), New Energy in Design and Art, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam (2011) a solo exhibition The Curious Image, Blain|Southern, London (2011),Telling Tales at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, (2009), Thing: Beware the Material World at Art Gallery of Western Australia, Perth (2009), Digitally Mastered: Recent Acquisitions from the Museum’s Collection, Museum of Modern Art, New York City (2007) and Space for your Future, Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo (2007)."
