Description

“In a near future, when fossil fuels will be scare, oil will not be burnt away and wasted in energy and transport but reserved for high-value processes and products such as plastic manufacturing.” (Ray Hammond, futurist)

Plastic will be the legacy of humankind and has been hypothesized to act as the maker of the Anthropocene – the name of the current geochronological epoch in which humans have become the most important factor influencing biological, geological, and atmospheric processes on Earth.

“Ars Memorandi” has been designed with aesthetic concerns, combining technological progress with crafts, inspired from artfully crafted 16th-century collector’s pieces. This symbol of luxury stands in contrast to the choice of its materiality aiming to question how we perceive, use, and what we make from plastics today.

About the designer


studio b severin

“Revealing the relationships between people and objects is the aim of our approach. It allows us to see ourselves as part of a bigger picture - a complex system - we belong to and live in.” (Birgit Severin) “We create narrative objects which reflect about past and present while opening up to alternative futures. ” (Guillaume Neu-Rinaudo) Studio B Severin explores culture and society by re-designing objects and materials. The studio is based in Berlin and run by the French-German duo Birgit Severin and Guillaume Neu-Rinaudo. Objects are extensions of our body and mind, making this connection explicit is the aim of “studio b severin”s design approach. Based on research, taking psychological, anthropological, and philosophical questions into account, the outcomes are objects which through their function and aesthetic transmit their implicit message. Their work has been shown nationally and internationally at prestigious museums, biennales, and fairs. The studio collaborates with curators, galleries, and companies while sharing their vision and thoughts workshop and lectures.

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
