Rotterdam's Galerie VIVID presented "ContainersII"
by Antwerp design geniuses Studio Job ...
at Design/Miami 2011.
The project began with the designers discovery of a collection
of incomplete antique crystal pieces
at the warehouses of Belgian crystal manufacturer
They incorporated five vessels into this paradoxical work .....
referencing the contrasts of today ....
function & surreal, rich & poor, good & evil,
fantasy & reality,
and high & low culture.
I think all of the pieces are fabulous "accessorations" ......
but the "Stewpan" is my particular favorite!!!
It's definitely a "boat" that could "sail" across my bookcase!!!
