Tabernacle Street, London
Opening at Gallery FUMI this Friday is the first UK show of Dutch-based design team Kranen/Gille.
Jos Kranen and Johannes Gille met while they were both studying at the Design Academy Eindhoven. In their designs they seek to combine various disciplines and craftsmanship with their own particular aesthetic. All of their pieces offer an intriguing mix of industrialized and organic forms. Inspired by the aesthetic of abandoned places, industrialisation, factories and detailed craftsmanship they are constantly renewing themselves in order to express their feelings towards functionality.
The selections of works on show at FUMI will included a variety of tables, lamps, chairs and other furniture such as the acclaimed ‘Fredersen’ Wingchair and the brand new ‘Moloch’ drinks cabinet.
