Bubble series

by Melvin Sokolsky
in 1963

“With the awareness that I was prone to live in my own head much of the time, and inclined to severe self-criticism, I began to have doubts whether I could create images on film that reflected the images in my mind’s eye.”
The Bubble was produced in ten days of Plexiglass and aircraft aluminum for the hinged rings. After a successful test run, Sokolsky was off to Paris to shoot the Spring Collections for Harper’s Bazaar. The challenge was to position a telescopic crane at each location from which the Bubble would be suspended. Using his favorite model at the time, Simone d’Aillencourt, she would get into the Bubble that was suspended a few feet off the ground, (hinged at the top like a Faberge Egg) so that it could easily swing open for entry. After being locked in safely and able to breathe due to the space between the hemispheres

Cylindrical illusion

Recently I have been working on illusion for a retail project. What an amazing installation will be if we change the scale of the picture above by making that mirror cylinder 5 meters high and we create a landscape on the floor around it... just saying if some curator wants to buy the idea...

Ready made curtain

by Roan & Erwan Bouroullec

Some objects are designed based on a need that no one else has approached before. This is a clever, beautiful and elegant design for something that most of the times is really ugly and have not been thought for a long time.

The Ready Made Curtain requires the participation of the owner in its making. Everything one needs to fix the curtain is provided: a hanging cord, wall fixings, pegs, and a selection of Kvadrat textiles.

“The ambition was to create a new system that allows anyone to install a quality curtain in r
ecord time. Little skill and few tools are needed, margin for error has been considered and perfection isn’t an absolute requirement. In fact, the charm of the imperfect in opposition to the overly sanitised interior, is something we believe in,” note Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.
