The ‘Chromaesthesiae‘ designed by NY-based design studio Softlab (Jose Gonzalez and Michael Szivos), is an installation which investigates our spatial and chromatic perception of space. Using modularity as a core modality, Softlab generates a complexity from repetitive forms, allowing for rapid expansion or contraction of each piece created.
The ability to adapt, change, and grow conceptually underpins their body of work. this customizable installation is made from everyday objects which have been re-purposed and recombined. The trumpet shaped forms are made from laser cut paper structures held together with binder clips. The effect seen from the underside looking up, is a quilted vision of vibrant color. This facility will be visible from March 19 to April 5, 2010, at Devotion Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.
“Softlab is a design studio based in new york city. The studio was created by jose gonzalez and michael Szivos shortly after receiving graduate degrees in architecture from the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at Columbia University. The studio has since been involved in the design and production of projects across almost every medium, from digitally fabricated large-scale sculpture, to interactive design, to large-scale digital video installations. have adjusted the studio to a wide range of projects, it began to focus less on medium and style and more on ideas.”
