the ‘pipapo’ sculpture by german studio jürgen mayer h. architects has a lattice-like formation, delicately milled using a natural stone pattern. presented at art basel miami beach 2013 by galerie EIGEN + ART, the alpine mist (5110) caesarstone constructed piece was designed as part of the quartz surface company’s ‘supernatural series’. the work is based on mayer h.’s long standing interest in data protection patterns, found in items such as the inside of envelopes sent by government agencies and banks. their extremely dense optical pattern aims to protect the personal content of letters from indiscretion, making sensitive data invisible by presenting a sphere of exclusive knowledge. exploring notions of camouflaged digital design and the interrelations of communicative spaces, ‘pipapo’ represents an endless pattern field through the exposed, the hidden, the material and the immaterial.  

 

‘we like to speculate on the potential of new materials for our built environment, to stress the limits of production possibilities and to keep the way we use them free to explore.’ says jürgen mayer h.
