“What if humans, flora and fauna, the environment, objects, and architecture work together and form one balanced system?” At the Radical City Inc. exhibition, designers and architects challenge traditional ideas about the city and explore other routes to a new, future-oriented urban landscape.
At SPOOR K, Pure Morning Portal by Alfhild Külper consists of sustainable yarn, organically shaped on a tinted mirror, and a lushly textured landscape design that invites contemplation. Described as a “doorway to a world without worries,” it bathes in gold-pink light, radiating calm and joy.
Studio ThusThat introduces the Crust Collection, which delves into the raw backstory of everyday materials, repurposing aluminium waste crusts to craft unique interior objects. The new Lamina Light by Tijs Gilde of Studio Guilty amplifies colour patterns within a modular structure of recycled acrylic material and explores efficient production and recycling techniques.
Through acceleration and manipulation, the Eclipse Transience mirrors by Lex Pott & David Derksen illustrate the various stages of oxidation, transitioning from rich brown to radiant gold and, finally, shimmering silver tones. Merel Karhof presents the Airfoil Table, creating stunning blue oxidation gradients on oak wood surfaces through a controlled, sustainable printing process.
