Still Life – The Art of Living: Exploring the Beauty of Personal Expression in Minimalist Design
Still Life – The Art of Living was a minimalist exhibition of personal artifacts, furniture, and objects from Ariake, Dux, and Origin Made, with rugs from Sera Helsinki and lighting from Secto Design. The aim of the exhibition, curated by Gabriel Tan and styled by Kråkvik/D’Orazio, was not simply to showcase the panache of high-end design houses, but also a testament to the beauty of personal expression, reflected in the eclecticism of real homes.
The pieces chosen were not confined to a single brand, but instead symbolized the diverse tastes and preferences of individuals, and the seamless way in which these disparate elements can coexist harmoniously. Rather than fixating solely on the novelty of each item, the organizers delve deeper into the conversation that exists between art, objects, and furniture. In this vein, the exhibit was not limited to physical displays.
This exhibition explored a broader narrative, beyond the object itself, revealing the art of everyday living as seen through the lenses of personal style, craftsmanship, and the harmonious blend of varying aesthetic sources. The living room space also played host to thought-provoking discussions led by Tony Chambers and Hanna Nova Beatrice.
