  1. Surface in Surface

    In front of a large crowd of designers, artists, and filmmakers, David van Eyssen's Surface premiered at the Twentieth gallery on January 24. The video work features the six meter Limited Edition Surface Table by Established & Sons, on display for the first time in North America exclusively at Twentieth.

    Fittingly, the Surface Table and van Eyssen's piece were exclusively featured in Surface magazine.



    As the article recounts, the table’s otherworldliness resonated with video artist David Van Eyssen, whose head immediately went to the clouds. “I was struck by the table’s startlingly thin profile, which suggests an endless horizon provoking images of a barren planet—a clean slate on which life could begin again,” he muses. Thus, his latest project was born.

    The video follows the journey of dancers Candace Cane, Lauren Avon, and Ghislain Grellier as they freely evolve on and under the table. Backdropping the trio is Mattia Biagi’s melting tar chandelier and large-scale photographic prints by Daniele Albright. And much like the Twentieth pieces starring in the video, cosmic references take center stage. Lunar imagery from NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio and footage of the first-ever video recording from Mars is overlaid, as are sounds of Martian winds captured by the Insight rover. “I suggested that we think about the movement of Insight as it comes to life after landing on alien soil,” says Van Eyssen. “Humans are emulating a machine that, with its outstretched armature and cameras for eyes, emulates humans.”

    Think Piece: Christopher Boots on the Healing Power of Minerals
    Christopher Boots’s bronze folding screen shimmers with quartz and lapis lazuli

    In his native Melbourne, industrial designer Christopher Boots grew up hunting rocks. His favorite find? Quartz. These days, hunks of the common crystal join a sprinkling of lapis lazuli in the Aussie’s first room divider. “I like to get my hands dirty,” says Boots, who cast the celestial screen in bronze using a lost-wax method to leave hand marks and a surface-of-the-moon texture on the limited edition of eight. Of his innate draw to minerals, the designer says: “I do believe in their healing power. We would probably improve as a species if we had more elements of nature in our interiors.” Available through Twentieth in Los Angeles.

    Edition of 8

    Christopher Boots spectacular creation, Vanity Screen, is a project of love that has taken four years to realize. Presented at Collective Design in New York in May 2017, the room divider incorporates clear and smoky quartz crystal and lapis lazuli in contrast to a moon like surface cast in solid bronze. The celestial screen is the first in a limited edition of eight.

    “In his native Melbourne, industrial designer Christopher Boots grew up hunting rocks. His favorite kind? Quartz. These days, hunks of the common crystal join a sprinkling of lapis lazuli in the Aussie's first room divider.

" (Architectural Digest, September 2017)

    Christopher Boots Studio produces a range of custom works both for clients and for design and process development. These pieces are intended to push the limits of the design process and explore materiality in order to advance the designer's craft and vision.
