The Museum of Art and Design in New York today premieres “Patrick Jouin: Design and Gesture.” The exhibition is part of the ongoing series “Madprojects.” It includes a series of lamps for the Leucos/FDV Collection. Handcrafted in Venice, the ethereal lamps are composed of tiny tubes and cloud like elements of LEDs and halogen bulbs. They bear such names as REED, ETHER and MERCURE.
The show also includes products Jouin has designed, backed by a looped film exploring the relationship between object and gesture.
