Raw materials, sophisticated design: Carpenters Workshop Gallery at TEFAF

by @industrialkonzept Team

Carpenters Workshop Gallery presents 14 artists with a total of 26 pieces at TEFAF Maastricht. The selection shows a remarkable diversity of practices, approaches, materials, periods and aesthetics. The result is a deliberately eclectic body of work that represents the remarkable diversity of design today.

Eclectic works by established and emerging artists

The group exhibition includes some of the gallery's most established artists such as Rick Owens, Wendell Castle, Roger Herman and Frederik Molenschot. But new figures such as Luke Fuller, Charles Trevelyan and Giacomo Ravagli also offer you an insight into the voices currently redefining contemporary collectible design.

South Korean artist Wonmin Park is particularly highlighted. His recent exhibitions "Stone+Steel" in London 2021 and "On Earth" in Paris 2022 have secured his place as a major player in the international art world. Carpenters Workshop Gallery is proud to have worked with Wonmin since the beginning, supporting his development throughout his rapidly rising career. A selection of Wonmin's latest pieces will be presented, including his series "Plain Cuts_Stone and Steel".

A sneak peek of the featured works


Rick Owens - Curial Aluminum Chair

Rick Owens' influences from the grandiose and clear logic of brutalist architecture are well known and evident in his Curial chair collection, which consists of geometric shapes and thoughtful lines. The chair, reinterpreted in polished aluminum, is an example of Owens' ability to transform the principles of his large-scale designs into smaller, functional works of art.

Vincenzo de Cotiis Table

Vincenzo de Cotiis - DC2206 from the Interlude line

In his latest series "Interlude", Vincenzo de Cotiis explores design forms with an introspective calm. The DC2206 console table design is made from stromatolite and recycled fiberglass that is so finely crafted that the transition between the man-made material and the antique stone blends seamlessly.

This distinctive feature reflects De Cotiis' ability to combine materials, rationalize dualities and create new qualities from contrasting materials. Using this technique, he creates unique works of art that blur and merge the boundaries between old and new, natural and artificial.


Wonmin Park - Plain Cuts Stone & Steel #9

The Plain Cuts Stone & Steel #9 bench shows the perfect complement of its two material components. The black, shiny polished stone is of volcanic origin and has a high iron content, which gives it its dark, metallic color. Its rustic appearance is the result of a natural patina created by the action of air and moisture on the earth's surface.

The steel serves as a smooth counterpart to the rough surface of the stone, creating a harmonious combination. Together they form a unique bench that is an eye-catcher due to its special properties.
