New York- and Athens-based design studio Objects of Common Interest was selected for the second consecutive year by online publication and curatorial platform Sight Unseen‘s booth at Collective Design. In response, the studio created an immersive installation named Landscape for the event that was held in Brussels March 14 to 17, 2019.
Landscape is made up of three unique components that together create a reflective mirrored still-life. The first element, Tube Lights, is a series of glowing curved formations; the second is Formations II, a collection of upholstered sculptural seating; and the third is Blow Chair, a soft sculpture that also functions as a lounge.
“We wanted to create an immersive, playful landscape of curves, seen as an installation through the individuality and juxtaposition of the various pieces presented,” say Eleni Petaloti and Leonidas Trampoukis, founders of Objects of Common Interest. “The glowing tubular lights are reflected in the stainless-steel mirror elements, extending their original shapes. They’re bent again and constantly changing as visitors progress in the space, moving around, resting, mingling and self-reflecting.”
