6 Spectacular Collectible Design Shows to Check out This Winter
15th December 2023
1. “Reverse Fireworks in Slow Motion” at Carpenters Workshop Gallery | New York
Fast-rising Athens artist Kostas Lambridis has conceived a new suite of functional works now on view at Carpenters Workshop Gallery in New York. Here, the Design Academy Eindhoven alum has taken on a mono-material approach, meticulously assembling furnishings and accents using an eclectic trove of found objects that share a base medium (metal, plastic, wood, or mineral), but little else aesthetically. The resulting pieces, including a show-stopping metal bar and monumental wooden table, have a patchwork appearance that is tactile, curious, and utterly harmonious all at once.
