mitterrand+cramer, geneva november 18, 2008 – january 10, 2009

edward mitterrand and stéphanie cramer will be presenting ‘industry’ a new installation by designers job smeets and nynke tynagel of studio job. the exhibition is the first in a 6 part series of exhibits dedicated to contemporary limited design. the show will feature seven new works, five of which are marquetry objects: a cabinet, a screen, a dressoir, a table and a pedestal all inlayed with white dyed bird’s eye maple and black dyed tulip tree veneer. the studio adapted this traditional woodworking technique using modern laser cutting technology. the pieces all feature intricate and thin patterns, achieving something not possible before. the patterns depict objects and symbolism representative of modern capitalism in a rorschach like arrangement. helicopters, nuclear power plants, high voltage pylons, guns, bullets, hunting knives and a series of animals are only some of the images depicted.
