Much of Rotganzen’s inspiration comes from the USA. Here, creating icons out of everyday objects, and referencing those icons in art and design, is a unique part of the cultural fabric. As an homage to this inspiration, Rotganzen has – exclusively for Design Miami – created a series of Quelle Fête sculptural pieces honoring American design, manufacturing, and industry, as well as popular sports and food.
Rotganzen (2009) is a Dutch art collective in the tradition of American Pop Art and the Italian Radical Design movement. Rotganzen bridges art and design, and finds inspiration in daily life and popular culture. By changing the appearance and context of everyday objects and products, they create work full of contrast and surprise, visually as well as conceptually. Their intricate use of color and choice of materials stand in clear contrast with the simplicity of their design language.
Quelle Fête by Rotganzen is a playful representation of past glory and a melancholic reminder of the glamour nights in clubs like Studio 54, Paradise Garage and The Roxy. It is also a very visual metaphor of times gone by and the loss of imagined innocence. Painstakingly handmade in the Rotganzen studio, and released only in limited editions or exclusive originals, Quelle Fête is currently one of the most coveted collector’s series around.
