the ‘wireframe collection’ by noiz architects consists of a series of ‘digitalized’ furniture and objects designed for the lobby of the museum of national taipei university of education. established in 2011, the organization’s mission is to drive art awareness and city aesthetics among the local community. in order to compliment this philosophy within the commission, the avant-garde assortment is created from 3mm black steel rods, all bent and welded according to their templates. these pieces are deliberately constructed to resemble raw outlines in three-dimensional computer modeling software to develop a sense of illusion against reality. when placed in actual settings, they transform the museum space into a ‘bitspace.’

the entire compilation ranges from interior items, such as a reception counter, couch sofa, and bookshelves, to plant pots for flowers and shrubs. particularly noteworthy is the ‘melting’ coffee table, which is split in half and liquified down the middle to exaggerate the unrealistic nature of the object. each furnishing holds the same function and form as its conventional counterpart, yet challenges the viewer by depriving it of its mass and materiality – leaving only the hollow form to be observed and experienced.

within the gallery, the project is placed alongside 19th-century french plaster sculptures donated from the metropolitan museum of new york. the resulting juxtaposition of forms with and without profound solidity and history creates an interesting dialogue between the old and the new, physical and digital, hence, reinforcing the contemporaneity of the institution.
