Gerrit Th. Rietveld
Richard Woods / Sebastian Wrong
For Design Miami 2012, Galerie VIVID is proud to present new contemporary designs alongside several iconic pieces by Gerrit Rietveld, the great Dutch furniture designer and architect.
A highlight of the exhibition will be an unused Rietveld Red Blue chair executed by Gerard A. van Groenekan. This chair was ordered by an American architect in 1965 but never made it to America and was put in storage. Almost fifty years later, the chair along with the original shipping crate will arrive in the United States and be on display.
Galerie VIVID will debut an edition of four Bent Wood Tables by British artist, designer Richard Woods and Sebastian Wrong. The colorful hand-painted low tables form together an installation that crosses boundaries between design and art.
Three new unique vases by Glithero (Sarah van Gameren and Tim Simpson) will VIVID present in Miami. As a follow-up to their famous Blueware Vases Glithero developed 'Silverware', a photographic technique that captures direct impressions of seaweed specimen on porcelain. The resulting images resemble abstract art from the 1950's on surfaces that echo Wedgewood's black and white Portland vase.
Also on display will be the bronze Recession Chair by Frank Tjepkema (Tjep.) and new Masks by Bertjan Pot
