Design Miami/Basel: Rolf Sachs & Nucleo at Ammann Gallery

By Codi Mohr

June 23, 2014

Ammann Gallery displayed a select group of work by its artists and designers at Design Miami/Basel 2014 under the common theme of exploring the metaphorical language of nature. Of note were new works from Rolf Sachs and design collective Nucleo.

Sachs’ installation Ewiger Lauf, translated as “eternal run,” played on the gallery’s nature theme in its depiction of the never-ending cycle of life. The work featured a gutter from which a blue light poured seemingly endlessly into a bucket.

Countering Sachs’ circle of life depiction, Nucleo’s series of works “Souvenirs of the Last Century” used reclaimed wood from different eras fossilized in a transparent body of resin, a process the Italian design collective describes as up-cycling as physical memories take on new forms.

Other artists featured by the gallery included Florian Borkenhagen and his ironic analysis of tradition, Shi Jianmin’s contrasts of the hardness of steel and the softness of its shape, Boyoung Jung & Emmanuell Wolfs who created a square tree trunk cast in bronze, Indian designer Satyendra Pakhalé, and Ron Arad’s Big Easy chair.
