Berlin-based design gallery HELMRINDERKNECHT contemporary design dedicates its second show completely to the subject of vases. The exhibition VASE vs. VASES brings together contemporary positions of 15 national and international designers and artists. Works of renowned designers and young upcoming design talents are shown in the creative tension between diverse forms of design engineering, and a variety of materials and production approaches.
The novel handling of experimental and conceptual design, figuration, abstraction and craftsmanship result in vases that dance, that shine, that are actually a plant, that used to be a bag, and much more. The exhibition runs from November 14th 2009 through January 9th 2010.
