Dinosaur Legs to Lunar Rakes, Chamber Opens “Human | Nature”

No contributor

Last week, the contemporary “cabinet of curiosities” Chamber opened their Collection #2 curated by praised photographer and filmmaker, Andrew Zuckerman. Each year a guest artist or designer is asked to curate the gallery’s central program with Chamber’s founder, Juan Garcia Mosqueda. “Human | Nature” further explores the interactions between designed space and the natural world. The collection is composed of top artisans from different fields such as art, design, architecture, and features works by renowned botanic artist Azuma Makoto, architect Bjarke Ingels, Zuckerman himself, and many more.

The collection incorporates young designers to well-established firms with long heritages. From German porcelain Nymphenburg’s “Stag at Trunk” to emerging designers Chen Chen & Kai Williams’sTea Set,” the chosen pieces draw inspiration from natural materials, forms, and textures. While other rare objects like a NASA lunar rake and the Japanese Motocompo miniature vehicle contribute to this history of man and nature and the constant reinvention of design and functionality. Zuckerman reflected on the collection, “As an artist I’ve been deeply invested in an exploration of the natural world. So when I was approached about assembling Collection #2 for Chamber it felt right to delve into the conversation between design and nature, and its function in our living spaces. The show encompasses a collection of objects that reflect a meeting point between man and the environment.”

HUMAN

Our favorites include Parisian artist Luna Paiva’s “Luck Plant,” previously shown at the last Art Basel Miami Beach fair. Precious jewelry designed by Princess Cécile Zu Hohenlohe and a rare dinosaur leg excavated from Wyoming also caught our attention. Plus, an exquisite commissioned Bavarian mirror designed by renowned design firm Studio Job, who’ve previously curated Chamber’s first collection. These special commissions and rare items are featured in the first out of three chapters of “Human | Nature,” going on all year long.
