Culture

konekt-table

Twentieth is proud to exclusively represent Konekt in Los Angeles.

At the core of Konekt is Helena Sultan, a former photographer and award-winning documentary filmmaker. Helena developed her eye at an early age, influenced by the rich colors and layered textures of her mother's abstract oil paintings as well as the patinated metal of her father's gritty industrial plant. Helena further honed her sensibilities as she traveled widely, absorbing different cultures and influences. These various experiences have culminated in her signature collection of furniture shown below.

Every piece is handcrafted in Pennsylvania by skilled master craftsmen and artisans. All woods are sustainable American hardwoods, hand-finished with the finest oils.

PAUSE CHAISE LOUNGE
Created to unwind from the demands of daily life, the Pause Chaise Lounge inspires stillness and peace. Designed to embrace the body, its organic contours complement the human form while creating a feeling of lightness.  

a-cepa-mirrorA. CEPA MIRROR
Crafted from solid bronze, the A. Cepa Mirror draws the eye with its rich material and sculptural form.  

pause-chairPAUSE LOUNGE CHAIR
The Pause Lounge Chair, intended as the ultimate seat to unplug and relax, plays off Konekt's signature Pause Chaise. Balance is achieved with its modern, organic design and expertly upholstered seating. The curvaceous fiberglass shell embraces the body, the upholstery is meticulously hand-sewn, and the four splayed metal legs taper down to teardrop-shaped feet.

PETRA COFFEE TABLE
The legs of the oval-shaped Petra Coffee Table are inspired by the legs of a camel. The Petra features a precision cut, honed marble tabletop and sculptural legs of cast bronze.

BIANCA ARM CHAIR
This solid wood chair is crafted by hand, using mortise and tenon joints. The sweeping, sculptural armrest creates a striking silhouette that embraces the body. An upholstered back-pan is optional while the upholstered seat provides a high level of comfort and a floating appearance. Tapered, splayed legs extend in an elegant curve from the top of the seat-back to the floor. The Bianca Chair is equally at home around a table or standing on its own as an accent.

 Time Machine

"Within an abandoned vaulted storage room next to the historic Milano Centrale station, a white carousel spun—the only object in a raw, unfinished space. On that carousel, visitors found reimaginings of furniture, objects and lighting drawn from ten years worth of English designer Lee Broom's collections.
Together, the collection captures the magnificence of Broom's work, as both a catalog of well-executed ideas and as a conceptual exhibition unto itself."

Laurent 11/Mile

"Mile is a technical lamp characterized by an asymmetrical luminaire. Created in direct collaboration between the company's founder and the Canadian designer Guillaume Sasseville, Mile is a highly-featured design lamp, in which the use of linear LEDs and embedded cables in the structure accentuates the 'absence of gravity' almost creating the illusion of levitation."

Established & Sons collection is revitalized with Sebastian Wrong at the helm.

"The utilitarian feel of the furniture that we have made is somewhat at odds with the cartoon graphic surface that covers it, and I feel this marriage illustrates perfectly the success of the collaborative process."

Cluster/Top Pendant Light

"Futuristic and faceted, Cut is an exercise in optics.  Its space-age mirror finish when off transforms to reveal a translucent kaleidoscopic gem when switched on. Hypnotising reflections of the luminous orb within repeat infinitely within the diamond cut, vacuum metallised interior."

Kazimir Pendant

"Striated, ribbed glasswork casting complex compositions of shadow, light and color played a big role at Euroluce, the biannual lighting-focused exhibition presented under the Salone umbrella. New York City-based showroom Roll & Hill exhibited a new rectangular Kazimir pendant, a layered, dichroic piece designed by Ladies & Gentlemen Studio and named after the Constructivist artist Kazimir Malevich."

Mattia Biagi: WHITE LIGHT/PITCH BLACK
March 4 – April 14, 2017

Opening Reception
Saturday, March 4, 2017. 6-8PM
RSVP: info@thenew.gallery

THE NEW 7466 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

Image: Mattia Biagi, White Light it Lighten Up My Eyes, 2017, 45”x 25”, Tar, brass, LED tube, electrical wiring. Photo by Daniele Albright.

 With a play on the Velvet Underground’s album White Light/White Heat, Mattia Biagi’s White Light/Pitch Black exhibition celebrates an art punk aesthetic of recontextualizing familiar objects and subverting longstanding symbols of culture and domestic life.

The dynamics of transformation is a driving concept and process behind Biagi’s work, in particular the transformative power of coating everyday objects with layers of viscous tar. In this context the decorative baroque chandelier, the ultimate symbol of domestic luxury, has its symbolic and cultural value subverted and transformed into an object of unexpected dark beauty, made all the more mysterious by the addition of a single minimal, modern light source penetrating it. The chandelier remains a light source, but not at all with the same meaning or purpose it once had. Its purpose has been undermined and yet somehow made more sublime through a mysterious rather than ostentatious beauty.

Alongside the chandeliers are a new series of round paintings. Here the transformative power of tar is explored on its own terms, as the singular materiality of painting. The black disks are reminiscent of vinyl records, an indirect reference to another type of domestic object. While on one level these minimal yet richly textured tar forms conjure dark themes like voids or black holes, they simultaneously invoke the opposite, their perfect geometric circularity referencing solid presence, totality and completion.

Mattia Biagi (b. 1974 Ravenna, Italy) lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. His work has been presented in solo exhibitions including Election Day at Le Dictateur in Milan (2013) and Fiori at Young Projects in Los Angeles (2014).
Group exhibitions include Storm of Life at Castello di Rivara in Turin, Italy in 2013; Un homme juste est quand même un homme mort at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris in 2013; and Erection at MAMA Gallery, Los Angeles in 2014. Biagi has recently collaborated with Johnny Walker for their Black Label bottle and his work is included in the permanent collections of the Mint Museum in Charlotte, North Carolina and the Louvre Museum in Dubai.

Fernando Mastrangelo Studios has completed their latest installation for THAKOON, at 70 Wooster Street in New York City.
 
Fernando Mastrangelo at Thakoon entry
 
Mastrangelo, with the help of his studio hand-poured 2,000 sq.ft. of cement on site to create custom curved walls, the first of their kind.
 

The THAKOON project was commissioned by SHoP Architects and the technique was adapted from the layered pours inherent to Mastrangelo's furniture line, MMaterial.

 

FM/S' portion of the project took 9 weeks and 3,000 hours on site to complete.
