Cristina Grajales Gallery is pleased to present new work by Suzanne Tick, Sam Baron, and Hechizoo as well as work by Nigel Coates, Sebastian Errazuriz, Ross Bleckner’s collaborative work with Steuben, and Christophe Come at Design Miami Basel, 2011.
To celebrate our sixth anniversary showing at Design Miami Basel, Cristina Grajales Gallery curated a booth that is architectural and sensual, textural and innovative. The pieces displayed highlight the interesting ways in which materials can be paired and integrated into unexpected design objects.
Debuting her work for the first time at Design Miami Basel, Cristina Grajales Gallery is thrilled to introduce work by Suzanne Tick, the former creative director of Knoll Textiles from 1997 – 2005. Suzanne’s textile work conveys a sense of material, structure, movement and tactility. Her weavings repurpose metal wire hangers, cardboard cylinders, and shredded paper in order to create layers of texture, transparency and depth.
Drawing on this theme of the innovative integration of materials, Nigel Coates’ Hyperotosphere Collection, which debuted for the first time at the 2008 Architecture Biennale in Venice, makes use of seemingly contrasting materials to achieve complimentary sensations. Coates toys with the combination of leather and stainless steel, highlighting the aesthetic contrast and the sensual nature of these two materials.
Baron’s Tourist emphasizes the viewer’s senses in his reinvention of the classic four-sided postcard holder. Tourist’s towering structure and shocking diamond shaped mirrors demonstrate a creative appropriation of a highly recognizable object.
