For Design Curio 2015, The Future Perfect presents ‘Fragments’, an immersive display of new works in stone by Dutch designer Lex Pott. The pieces are framed by a custom handmade wall-covering painted with pigment derived from the same stone by New York-based Calico Wallpaper, founded by Nicholas and Rachel Cope. The installation offers a dialogue between nature, with naturally broken forms, and industry, with polished planes of traditionally manufactured stone. The wallpaper design is hand-created on-site at Design Miami/, allowing visitors to see the process as it develops.
The Future Perfect is a showcase for exceptional decorative arts and design. Since its inception, The Future Perfect has been directly commissioning studio work and collaborating with designers, both established and emerging. Founded by David Alhadeff in 2003, The Future Perfect was an early platform for New York’s burgeoning local design scene and has since established itself as a premier destination for art and design from around the world.
With locations in New York and San Francisco, The Future Perfect offers a mix of programming including unique special projects, limited edition exclusive works and highly curated production pieces. In addition to its commitment to promote the rising stars of American design, The Future Perfect has been a leader in bringing international contemporary designers such as Jaime Hayon, Piet Hein Eek and Michael Anastassiades to the United States.
About Lex Pott
Lex Pott (1985) employs a raw and intuitive method. In his work, he returns to the origin of the materials he uses most: wood, stone and metal. He does not hide his designs under indirect layers, but reduces them to their very essence. Pott is an Amsterdam based designer and works from his studio in an old shipyard on the NDSM-Terrein, one of the last fringes in Amsterdam. He graduated cum laude in 2009 at the Design Academy Eindhoven.
