Working at the intersection of art and design, Soft Baroque is the collaborative practice of Nicholas Gardner and Saša Štucin, both of whom graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2013. The refined, simplified forms of their works reflect principles of midcentury design, but the pieces also veer toward conceptual territory by evoking the malleability of how objects are seen and mediated today. For the visual system titled New Surface Strategies, the London-based duo produces blue textiles and modernist-style furniture, the latter of which is made of simple plywood forms. The blue functions less as a fixed color and more as a skin on which different textures and patterns can be projected, suggesting that the object is both physical and digital.
