      Janine Abraham & Dirk-Jan Rol

      Fauteuil Soleil
    • The design of this armchair reflects Abraham and Rol’s interest in traditional Japanese interior design and American architecture. Abraham and Rol, in this piece, combine lines, space, and strength with extreme elegance, giving life to a modern object that highlights the importance of craftsmanship and artistry.

    Sakura TRP 21012, TRP 22005, and TRP 22001 by Maarten Vrolijk, 2020

    presented by Galerie SCENE OUVERTE
    • Maarten Vrolijk’s hand-blown glass vases are just extraordinary. Fragile and impactful, colourful and transparent, ornamental and functional, Vrolijk’s glasses question and push the boundaries of sculptural shapes and forms. At times recalling natural elements, the Sakura series highlights the designer’s fascination for everyday life and our surrounding environment.

    Restored 'Klini' Chaise Lounge in Walnut and Leather by T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, 1961

    presented by Morentz
    • T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings

      Restored 'Klini' Chaise Lounge in Walnut and Leather
    • Terence Howard Robsjohn-Gibbings, an English architect and furniture designer from the beginning of the 20th century, was inspired by ancient Greece's art and design – especially by the drawings he saw on ancient Greek vases - and by Art Deco. Visible in his objects, Robsjohn-Gibbings, reflects a furniture design philosophy that wants to be independent of time. Ancient yet modern, traditional yet innovative, his objects have become visual records of a long-lasting culture in our design-making history.

    Haze Vessel by we+, 2022

    presented by we+
    • Haze by we+ in the Podium exhibition symbolises rebirth and renewal. Born from discarded copper wire found in Tokyo and manually shaped into a vessel, this tangled and poetic object reexamines the relationship between humans and materials, giving new value to waste. Haze is part of we+’s project “Urban Origin”, an emblem of hope in the Podium.

    Feed me with Domestic Stuff by Diego Cibelli, 2020-21

    presented by Galleria Antonella Villanova
    • Somewhere between the unseen and the rediscovered, Cibelli's objects refer to the domestic environment during the pandemic period. Objects of everyday use are transformed, revised, and reused to become something new, whether a sculpture or a memory; these pieces take on the responsibility of telling a story.
