Ligne Roset’s non-conformist designs have always shared a common thread with contemporary art, and for Art Basel, Design Miami, the French furniture manufacturer is proud to support and promote creativity and original ideas in many forms. The progressive installations will incorporate digital mapping and algorithms, motion detection and video, sculpture and drawings, and experimentation in materials, from concrete to aluminum to textiles and more.
Patrons who visit the exhibit in December will experience the transformative process from past to present, and from one medium and point of view to the next as they journey through different decades and designs in the Ligne Roset showroom. Francisco selected each component to be energetic and immersive, to take away any distance between art and people, who will be encouraged to sit, engage, even photograph the artwork as they exist among it.
Many of the concepts shown are difficult to exhibit on a non-museum scale. Ligne Roset makes a commitment to the progressive arts by extending its showroom for this incubator of originality, finding a happy symbiosis with brilliant minds from around the globe. The exhibition will also feature a grand tunnel of Clouds textiles by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, culminating in a display of conceptual, limited-edition renderings of their artwork produced by and on loan from the Wrong Shop.
