julien carretero: 'to be continued' at moss, new york

julien carretero explores issues of control and perfection in serial production through his limited edition bench and table, from the series to be continued. using the repetitive actions existing within the production process as a tool, ironically, for highlighting differentiation as opposed to regularity, multiple casts in a polyurethane composite, variously colored, are layered one on top of the next, creating a long series of ‘slices’ which cause these remarkable works to gradually mutate in a sense, imperfectly ‘designing’ themselves.

‘to be continued’ opened during new york design week 09 will be on display until june 27 at moss, new york.

  • Well done! I’m sure you had great response!

    Hunn says:
  • this approach has been around forever-minus the tuity-fruity colors. take look at any architectural topography model.

    for me, it is a one liner and far from a timeless classic.
