Description

Handmade, acrylic armchair from the collection “The Beauty of Distortion”.

The Beauty of Distortion is a study on how our prejudices about materials can be altered through subversive use of crafting techniques, which melt, blow, stretch, and bend what we think the material is into a new, elegant distortion of what it could also be. A new notion of beauty, one that is alluringly twisted, warped, and bent, instead of industrially morose.

Made to order.

About the designer


Dorian Renard has developed a practice that oscillates between a fascination for materials and their mediated meanings. ⁠⁠Through a sculptural and experimental approach freely seeking the limits of the material, Dorian’s work challenges our perception of materiality in a sensitive yet conscious way. Driven by an exploration of the subversive use of crafting techniques, he has developed a distinct language that bears the signs of being shaped by human hands. It\'s during is graduation show in 2019 from the Design Academy of Eindhoven that he presented for the first time his collection : The Beauty of Distortion By showing how materials (acrylic) can be altered through subversive use of crafting techniques, which melt, blow, stretch and bend what we think the material is into a new, elegant distortion of what it could also be : A new notion of beauty, one that is alluringly twisted, warped and bent instead of industrially morose.

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
