Presented at the Salone del Mobile 2017in the historic flower shop Ditta Angelo Radaelli (Brera District )the collection In the Shadow of a Man from the London studio Child StudioThis is their first collection. It is their first collection, and yet, this very accomplished work, which falls between design and architecture, fascinates us. Come find out the subtle balance of these illuminating sculptures.

 

 

Child Studio, In the Shadow of a Man collection

The first element put forward regarding the first collection of Child Studio is the illusion. Indeed, you believe it to be a sculpture, it is in fact an object of lighting. You would imagine it almost animated, capable of producing a movement of coming and going in order to literally play with the luminous spheres. This is not the case, but this subtle balance between reality and fantasy arouses our interest by almost making us pass by the side of the dream.

Then the designers Chieh Huang and Alexey Kostikov play with our emotions, giving us that almost unbearable feeling of suspense when we imagine the glass spheres falling at any moment, due to the said movement we imagine. Here again, it is not the case, but inviting the audience to become emotionally involved in the play of these sculptural objects despite themselvesThis makes them as real as they are imaginary.

Finally, when viewed from different angles, the forms of these sculptures seem to change, to evolve according to a new rule of perception in three dimensions. The illusion of movement does not only lie in their status as half-architecture, half-object, but also in the fact that according to our point of view, these forms with light spheres appear different to us. Moreover, their reference to the surreal universe is indeed there: moving forms like Dalì, and quote from the Italian surrealist painter Giorgio De Chirico: 

 

"There is much more mystery in the shadow of a man walking on a sunny day than in all the religions of the world. »
