For the 2015 edition of the Salone del Mobile in Milan, David Derksen will show three new projects at the show ‘Dutch Satellite’.
This set of table trays and candleholders play with the abstraction of scale. They can be perceived as architectural elements that interact with each other. Made from perforated metal and reflective glass, they become architecture and together they form an abstract cityscape.
Drawing inspiration from laboratory glassware, the measuring stripes on these carafes become more than a functional element. In this case the stripes have been applied both as a functional and a decorative element. The measuring stripes become the decoration.
Based on the Moiré Jewelry, this series of wall lamps is a celebration of the intriguing moiré effect. By rotating the back layer, the pattern interferes with the pattern in front. Rings, squares or hexagons seem to appear and to move, making this into an almost hypnotic effect. These lamps invite to play and become fascinated by the moiré principle.
Dutch Satellite is made possible with the generous support of the Dutch Consulate in Milan
