Etage Projects is pleased to present the Swiss design duo Kueng Caputo.
Exhibiting for the first time in Denmark, Sarah Kueng and Lovis Caputo have created a new series of objects and screen prints for Etage Projects. The exhibition ONOFF will also present their marble and leat
The exhibition ONOFF reflects the experimental and playful, yet meticulous artistic approach of designers Sarah Kueng and Lovis Caputo. The exhibited works include the Travertino objects - a series of stools and bowls that highlight the quality of the material not only through the boxy, cylindrical composition but by subverting traditional finishing processes and integrating colour. As with the hand dyed leather bowls or lamps with painted bulbs, the seemingly random colour splashes are achieved through a multi-layered, non-reversible process that is built up one step at the time. Kueng Caputo's material adventures are often rooted in the complexities of crafts techniques, which are reconfigured to explore new dynamics between the minimal, the exuberant and the unexpected.
For Etage Projects, Sarah Kueng and Lovis Caputo have created a new series of objects and screen prints that play with the temporal properties of natural light on reflective surfaces, triggering unexpected perceptions of shapes and volumes.
Kueng Caputo consists of Sarah Kueng (1981) and Lovis Caputo (1982). The studio is based in Zürich, Switzerland. Previous exhibitions include Salon 94, New York, Miami Basel, Frieze art fair, Bergdorf and Goodman and dutch design week.
