About the work
Medium

Snarkitecture
American, Est. 2008

Snarkitecture is a partnership between an artist and an architect, and their work bridges the gap between functional objects, performance, and conceptual art. Alex Mustonen and Daniel Arsham studied architecture and art, respectively, at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. Since then, they’ve played with conventions of design, and upended viewers’ expectations with pieces that appear broken or sinking, like their cast-marble Split stool or the two-toned Slip bench. Their clean, inventive design has attracted the attention of Merce Cunningham, Hedi Slimane, and Richard Chai, for whom the duo carved a glacial cavern-like structure for a temporary store. Among their prolific commissions is Drift, a temporary structure made of inflated tubes for the entrance of Design Miami/ in 2012.
