March 17 – 21, 2016
Graf & Schelbe Gallery, Basel
Monstera Magnifica is part of ‘Designing Lightness’, an exhibition curated by Lidewij Edelkoort for Rado, the Swiss producer of luxurious timepieces.
“The contemporary design scene is on a quest for lightness. From the streamlining of ceramics to the use of transparencies or the injection of air, objects are set afloat and embedded with an ethereal energy that corresponds to our desire for a lighter existence. Material is the message and mindfulness is the movement.
Rado has invited world‐renowned trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort to curate a design exhibition that illustrates this tendency. By bringing together innovative works by international designers, Edelkoort and her team will show how a “weightless” socio‐cultural philosophy is being previewed in design today.”
