LABINAC in Brasil – “What we always did” – Exhibition at Casa Zalszupin and Galeria Jaquelin Martins, Sao Paulo

We are excited to announce that LABINAC is presenting its designs for the first time in Brazil. The generous invitation by Galeria Jaqueline Martins and Casa Zalszupin in Sao Paulo gives us the wonderful possibility to show our works in two wonderful spaces.

The exhibition titled “What we always did” was curated by Jacopo Visconti Crivelli and takes place in two different spaces – the art gallery and the house of the designer Jorge Zalszupin – where the objects are placed in a relationship and friction with context that allow them to be seen and read differently.

Maria Thereza Alves collaborated with ETEL Design to create new works specifically for the exhibition and the intervention in the house of Jorge Zalszupin.

The opening takes place on the 25th of November 2023. We are looking forward to welcoming you!

Please find the press release here:  A&D Labinac – ENGLISH – What we always did.

LABINAC at Studio Mondial

We are happy to announce, that LABINAC was invited to present designs by Maria Thereza Alves and Jimmie Durham at Studio Mondial in Berlin.

The opening is on Friday, 16th of June, at 6:00 pm

 

Studio Mondial / Kunsthaus Kurfürstendamm
Kurfürstendamm 47
10707 Berlin

 

 

 

Studio Mondial is opening the first and last exhibition of an imaginary art house on Kurfürstendamm, which will unfold in multiple acts throughout the summer in and around the former Hotel Mondial at Kurfürstendamm 47, corner of Bleibtreustraße.

The diverse program takes inspiration from the history and flair of the boulevard, transforming the house into a meeting place and playground for artistic experiments. It aims to provide a temporary space for cultural and social interaction that goes beyond commercial interests.

The exhibition’s scope will also include public spaces and Kurfürstendamm itself, where the project will expand through actions, interventions, and performances. The program seeks to spark a discussion about the cultural realignment of the boulevard, acting as a cuckoo’s nest.

Studio Mondial is an initiave by Lutz Henke and Vlado Velkov.

Verzweigung / Branching – architectural art competion New National Gallery – Museum of the 20th Century, Berlin

We are happy to publish our participation in an architectural art competition for New National Gallery – Museum of the 20th Century in 2022.

The competition was for a mobile outdoor object with interactive and gastronomical functionality (KIOSK).

The entry was designed in collaboration with Thilo Folkerts / 100land
and with the contribution  of Lion Schreiber and Zimmerei und Dachdeckerei Quappe.

 

BRANCHING

Where a branch of a tree meets another, is where decisions are made to break off into different paths. A section of a fallen tree, part of a wood collection of decades. The sides are planed so that the complexities of the movements become more visible. Copper, wood, and glass emphasize those surfaces and processes. Scaled by twenty, they become a kiosk that celebrates the tree’s efforts and thinking . It is neither the geometric, formal perfection that informs this kiosk, nor a (crystalline) purity of materiality, but rather a merging of materials and their directions in facets. A space that is given rather than taken.

The kiosk is a space of hospitality. A folding hatch signalizes the state of openness and shelters those in communication with whoever is at the counter inside the kiosk, handing out drinks, coffee, some energy bar or nuts, or brochures, flyers, information. Two facets are made of glass. Behind them monitors might show video, images or text. A vitrine that is open to show many formats. The space can be separated interiorly by an opaque textile screen, that can be spanned from roof to floor. The kiosk is—inside and outside—a temporary project space.

The inside of the kiosk is fitted minimally for storage, appliances and work-surfaces.

The door is designed so that it can remain open for long periods (weather permitting) and contribute to the “open character” of the kiosk.

Opening of exhibition “Reflections on Disturbances between Boundaries” in Napoli

It is with great pleasure that Fonderia Nolana Del Giudice together with LABINAC announce the opening of the exhibition dedicated to the memory of the artist and designer Riccardo Dalisi, in Via Crispi 69, on 19 January 2023, from 17:00 to 20:00, titled

 

Reflections on Disturbances between Boundaries

 

The presence of the word “reflections” in the title refers to a specific object that we asked the various designers to interpret through their own practice for this exhibition: the mirror. The mirror, that metal plate that was created to faithfully reproduce our image, has now become an iconic object, of which we practically all own one. For this show a few designers from the collective have worked with the concept of reflections and develop it according to their own artistic and expressive style.

Opening of exhibition “De-growth Design: A Tribute to Riccardo Dalisi” in Napoli

It is with great pleasure that Fonderia Nolana Del Giudice together with LABINAC announce the opening of the exhibition dedicated to the memory of the artist and designer Riccardo Dalisi, in Via Crispi 69, on 29 September 2022, from 12:00 to 20:00, titled

 

Il design dell decrescita:
Un omaggio a Riccardo Dalisi

 

De-growth Design:
A Tribute to Riccardo Dalisi

 

The exhibition will present 26 unique design works by Dalisi, almost all original prototypes, that were generously loaned by Atelier Dalisi.

Riccardo Dalisi was a designer who always knew how to combine work on an industrial scale with the artisanal. An artist tout court, it could be said, whose work ranged from design, in the strict sense, to the free interpretation of the artist as more commonly understood. Each artistic possibility was used by him in a special and absolutely unique way, giving a profound meaning to whatever he created.

In the selection of the objects that are on display the joyful and playful aspect of the Dalisian approach to design becomes evident. Experimentation on and with the material results in elaborate shapes, and becomes one of the designer’s distinctive features.

Riccardo Dalisi’s works in the show interact in continuity and in a game of references with works by LABINAC, the complete the exhibition.

Opening of the second exhibition “Life of the Applied” dedicated to LABINAC in Naples

It is with great pleasure that Fonderia Nolana Del Giudice together with LABINAC announce the opening of the second exhibition entirely dedicated to LABINAC in Naples, in Via Crispi 69, on 4 July 2022, from 16:00 to 20:00, titled

Life of the Applied

with designs by Maria Thereza Alves, Jimmie Durham, Rosaria Iazzetta, Jone Kvie, Philipp Modersohn, Alessandro Piromallo, Víctor Santamarina and Elisa Strinna.

From the very beginning our intention for LABINAC in Naples has been to create a place where objects become free of conceived singularities, through experimentation, new artistic production, as well as encounters and activities in the city. The space is ever evolving, as ever evolving as the objects that live within in it.

For this second show, LABINAC continues to investigate the boundless possibilities of materials and does so with the participation of two new artists: Rosaria Iazzetta and Víctor Santamarina.
