Working with local artisans across Africa and the Middle East in a variety of mediums, French multidisciplinary artist and designer Louis Barthélemy @louisbarthelemy creates contemporary artworks and artefacts based on centuries-old techniques, driven by his commitment to conserving and supporting vernacular handicrafts threatened by globalization. Inspired by the mystical universe of Senegalese wrestling which Barthélemy immersed himself during a trip to #Dakar, his latest series of appliquéd tapestries, “Wrestlers”, evocatively encapsulates the anthropological-informed approach of his practice as well as reflects the diverse influences behind his work. Made with “bazin”, a type of cotton brocade popular in West Africa, the quilt-like tapestries were handcrafted in Cairo in collaboration with Egyptian artisans who practice “khayamiya”, a type of decorative appliqué technique historically used to decorate tents across the Middle East. On view at Théodore Monod Museum of African Art in Dakar until January 20, 2022. Photography © Louis Barthélemy. . . Featured: From the series Lutteurs/Wrestlers.

Sitting adjacent to the entrance of @ngadc National Gallery of Art’s East Building in Washington, DC, Henry Moore’s monumental “Knife Edge Mirror Two Piece” epitomise the artist’s late period which was defined by powerful, complex abstract forms, experimentation with materials and scale, and a new dynamic relationship with architecture. Commissioned by the museum in 1973 to design a grand sculpture for East Building’s Pennsylvania Avenue façade, Moore developed Knife Edge Mirror Two Piece in collaboration with the building’s architect I.M. Pei despite his acknowledged aversion to architects and architectural commissions – perhaps a sign of his maturing sensibilities. That’s not to say that the 4-year process was all smooth sailing, Moore’s insistence on being able to see the sculpture from all sides that for all his meant that I.M. Pei had to redesign the original pedestal into a triangular promontory jutting out from the terrace. . . Henry Moore, Knife Edge Mirror Two Piece, 1976-1978.

No space is too vast or too small to be filled by our thoughts and our reveries, especially those spaces that comprise what we call ‘home’, according to French philosopher Gaston Bachelard. In his seminal book “The Poetics of Space”, which was published in French in 1957 and translated into English in 1964, Bachelard takes readers on a lyrical journey, examining the domestic places that shape and hold our dreams and memories, from cellars and attics, to drawers, chests, and wardrobes, to nooks and corners. The book’s focus on the emotional response to architecture, both in life and in literary works, has been inspiring philosophers, architects, writers, and psychologists ever since it came out, while Bachelard’s stirring, mysterious imagery has been encouraging readers to stop seeing ordinary spaces in ordinary ways. . .

Undoubtedly, 2021 was (once again) a tough year but it has also been a time of retrospection and personal improvement. Adversity has made us stronger, more resilient and more cognizant of the things that matter; now it’s also time to also be hopeful. Just like the ugly duckling, which endured a barrage of hardships with stoic endurance before turning into a majestic swan, we are bound to rise from the ashes of the pandemic more enlightened and self-assured than ever.

Straddling hyperrealism and surrealism, the illustrations of Turkish artist and graphic designer Aykut Aydoğdu @aykutmaykut are hauntingly poetic. Oftentimes combining human and animal subjects, his cryptic portraits are imbued with an uncanny yet soothing sensibility that inspire contemplation. Image: Aykut Aydoğdu, “BLACK”. Fine Art Print.

Located in the historic centre of #Shenyang, an expansive metropolis in northeastern China, LOVIVO Gallery stands out against the age-old environs thanks to its futuristic, high tech-inflected interior design. Commissioned by a technology company to design a gallery space and employee lounge within their office building, Shenyang-based architecture practice BAICAI Design have drawn inspiration from the paradigm shifting potential that high-tech companies promise to create a series of spaces that defy expectations. Combining the idea of the matrix with the concepts of infinity, weightlessness and ambiguity, the architects have dematerialised the spatial experience urging visitors to explore the premises and by extension think about the infinite possibilities that the future holds.

Is there a more potent elixir for fostering creative connections than a well-crafted cocktail or a glass of fine wine? This idea lies at the heart of the recently unveiled Gallery Bar at @neuehouse Madison Square, a member’s club and community for creatives, artists and entrepreneurs with ouposts in New York and Los Angeles. Featuring an elegant interior of moody enchantment and cool sophistication (think plush leather and velvet upholstery, exquisite carpentry, lush greenery, and textured concrete walls), the bar offers an outstanding cocktail and wine list, plus a day-to-night menu with everything from power breakfast to refined dinner dishes in line with NeueHouse’s mission to support creativity, innovation, collaboration and connection through food and drink.

Unveiled in tandem with the opening of its new exhibition space in Palazzo Brancaccio in #Rome, “Apartamento” is the latest endeavour of @contemporary_cluster, a contemporary art and design project space dedicated to cultural promotion and multidisciplinary experimentation. Located on the palazzo’s sixth floor, the private apartment was meticulously refurbished and eclectically furnished by architect @giorgia_cerulli_, co-founder of Contemporary Cluster, whose artful mix of contemporary brands and designers is set in dialogue with the building’s architectural heritage. Featuring a playful paint colour palette, which was developed in collaboration with colour consultant @sabina_guidotti of @bludiprussiaroma, the apartment explores the modern dimension of living and highlights the pivotal role of design. Apartamento opened its doors in October with "Tout Brûle", an exhibition of paintings and ceramic and metal vases by Paris-based Italian artist Luca Casillo @di.loer which ran until December 11, 2021.

There’s something viscerally exhilarating about the typographic work of Seattle-based graphic designer Tyler Spangler @tyler_spangler which he describes as “a rainbow flavoured popsicle dipped in the ocean and placed on a rock to melt”. Bursting with vibrant colours and hallucinatory patterns, his images are imbued with a therapeutic quality – it’s no accident that Tyler studied psychology in college. In fact, his work is underpinned as much by his desire to quell his anxiety as his need to make sense of the world.

Located within an iconic Brutalist building in central #London, @toklas_london, a new restaurant, bakery and grocery store stands out among the latest arrivals in the city’s hospitality scene as much for its unpretentious yet sophisticated Mediterranean menu as for its restrained elegance and culture-minded inspiration. The brainchild of @friezeofficial founders Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover @mslotover, the venture is named after American author Alice B. Toklas who, together with her life partner Gertrude Stein, turned their pre-war Paris apartment into a modern art salon. By interweaving vintage and contemporary elements, British designer Stafford Schmool @stafschmool has subtly channelled the avant-garde spirit of Toklas and Stein’s artists and writers-packed soirees to create Toklas’ low-key, charming and genial environment.

“Is all that we see or seem, but a dream within a dream?”, Edgar Allan Poe poignantly asked in one of his poems in 1849, an existential query that has crossed all of our minds at some point (usually during sleepless nights). In fact, the concept of life as illusion has been gnawing at human consciousness since time immemorial, from ancient shamans who called the surface of life a dream, to Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, to the philosophical musings of Descartes and Kant, to popular culture – think The Matrix, Inception and pretty much most of David Lynch’s filmography. As Monica Bellucci cryptically said in Twin Peaks’ third season, "We are like the dreamer who dreams, and then lives inside the dream."

After a pandemic-prompted hiatus, @designmiami was back on track for its 17th edition which took place between December 1 – 5. Welcoming visitors at this year’s fair was Tomorrow Land, a public installation by Portland and Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary designer @alexproba that has transformed the Miami Design District (@miamidesigndistrict) into an interactive playground bursting with candy-bright colours, organic shapes and zany patterns. Designed in Proba’s signature style, the 21 large-scale sculptures marry the dreamlike surrealism of Salvador Dali, the energizing exuberance of Keith Haring and the zany mischievousness of the Memphis Group. Complemented by an interactive, virtual game from Portland-based design practice Enjoy the Weather, the fun-packed installation “harnesses”, in curators @anavaprojects’ words, “the power of design to spread a little joy and a sense of community”, a lofty mission matched by a deserving timeframe – on view until May 2022 with a selection of sculptures staying put as permanent fixtures.

One of our favourite designs by English designer Chris Martin for Stockholm-based furniture company @massproductions, the Crown Armchair has been reinvented by Geneva-based artist and illustrator Flora Mottini @fuluwatu in psychedelic fashion. The project is the first instalment of “The Crown Jewels”, a series of collaborations where four artists have been invited to recondition eight worn Crown Armchairs. Drawing from science fiction images and cartoons of the 1930-50s, Mottini’s work is imbued with a surrealist, psychedelic sensibility that draws you in. This is also the case here, with the artist swathing the chairs in soft foam material (sourced from leftovers from previous art projects) whose pleated form turns the chairs into sculptures. The series demonstrates the possibilities of restoration in line with Massproductions’ focus on sustainability, and in particular its mission to minimize waste, and comes in tandem with the launch of Face Lift, a global network of skilled upholsterers that aims to simplify the care and restoration of customers’ existing furniture.

★ YATZER GIVEAWAY CHRISTMAS 2021 ♥ Our second festive giveaway is a minimalist shoulder bag by one of our favourite leather goods brand, @Tsatsas. Eschewing fleeting trends and decorative flourishes in favour of a less-is-more ethos, the beauty of Tsatsas’ hand-crafted bags is based on the carefully chosen quality leathers, the exquisite craftsmanship and their fine-tuned functionality. Named OLIVE, our pick encapsulates the brand’s design philosophy down to the smallest detail. Made of calfskin leather in the brand’s Offenbach/Main atelier, the bag features an unconventional, sculptural body whose purist lines contrast with a filigree chain made in Italy from recycled brass. Lined with lamb Nappa in pacific blue and equipped with a back-facing narrow flap fastened with hidden magnets, each bag comes with its own individual chronological product number. Cutting a striking figure, OLIVE is elegant and progressive companion for day and night.

Featuring 13 large-scale, media-based installations, “LUX: New Wave of Contemporary Art” is an immersive London exhibition that brings together 12 of the world’s most celebrated new media artists and collectives working with the latest audio-visual technologies. Organised by SUUM Project in collaboration with Fact, the exhibition unfolds at @180.studios, a Brutalist edifice in central London which has been transformed into a multipurpose venue and home to several creative brands. The installations, several of which are new commissions, blur the lines between the physical and virtual worlds and expanding the boundaries of interactive and immersive art. . . Featured: (1) Universal Everything @universaleverything, Transfiguration, 2020. 4k digital film with stereo sound depicting a giant walking figure who undergoes a metamorphic change from water to fire, to lava, before cooling to solidify into rock. Held in the collection of Sifang Art Museum, Nanjing, Jiangsu, China. (2) Carsten Nicolai, Unicolor, 2014. The work unfolds against a long projection wall with two mirror walls on the side, thus visually expanding into infinity. (3) Es Devlin @esdevlin, BLUESKYWHITE, 2021. A site-specific installation co-commissioned by 180 Studios and LG that takes the form of a 24-meter light tunnel that modulates from portrait to landscape exploring our emotional response to the possible extinction of blue sky. . . The exhibition runs until December 18, 2021.
