Item description for Fragiles: Porcelain, Glass and Ceramics by Robert Klanten, Sven Ehmann, S. Grilli & Sonja Commentz...

Not long ago, porcelain, glass and ceramics were almost exclusively used to
make ostentatious objects best suited for display in grandmother s cabinet. But
now these classic materials are experiencing a renaissance. Today, they are increasingly
being utilised in playful ways by a new wave of designers and artists,
who are inspired by Modernism s clear forms as well as an ironic depiction of
figures, kitsch and the Romantic. Armed with these influences and an expanded
repertoire of forms made possible by technological developments such as rapid
prototyping, these designers and artists are manifesting their creative visions in
unconventional objects made of these fragile materials.
Fragiles is an eclectic collection of such contemporary work. This book presents
industrial applications made from porcelain, glass and ceramics such as the
exclusive, futuristic tableware now in use in avant-garde restaurants around the
world. It also features artistic glass objects by Arne Quinze and Jerszy Seymour
as well as striking porcelain products by Jurgen Bey, Marcel Wanders and Jaime
Hayon. In addition to these projects by renowned creatives, Fragiles also contains
an exciting selection of recent cutting-edge work by emerging talents.
The examples shown in Fragiles range from the experimental to evocative retroinspired
reinterpretations. The spectrum and quality of these innovative projects
shows a current generation of designers and artists just how relevant and
challenging working with these traditional materials can be.
