Ernesto Neto, Pantheon, Paris

Ernesto Neto works with abstract installations which often take up the entire exhibition space.

His materials are gossamer-thin, light, stretchable fabrics in nylon or cotton. Like fine membranes fixed to the ceiling by long, stretched threads his works hang down into the room and create shapes that are almost organic.

Sometimes they are filled with scented spices and hang in tear-shaped forms like gigantic mushrooms or huge stockings.

Sometimes he creates peculiar soft sculptures which the visitor is allowed to feel through small openings in the surface.

He also creates spatial labyrinths which the visitor can enter and thereby experience the work and interact  with it.

dduardo duarte, porcupine

Porcupine, a collaboration between New York based architect Eduardo Benamor Duarte and Caterina Tiazzoldi, is a chair designed explicitly for hotel lobbies, restaurants, airports and other waiting areas.

The chair is parametrically generated from a logic inspired by the fractal growth of a shell and different versions of it can be produced to precisely fit a room.

 The whole thing is surfaced in felt without any crossbracing. The felt, however, is reinforced from the inside with fiberglass.

The prototypical version of the chair was designed for the reception space of the Altis Hotel in Lisbon.
