LMAKbooks+design draws its impetus from the desire to provide a new platform for art-related thinking and functionality. It will present design within the realm of the fine arts from artists who develop design objects out of their studio practice, and designers who push their ideas into the visual arts. Our publications will vary from artist zines and limited-run small press publications to texts that explore the work of international writers and critical thinkers in the arts. As we will be showcasing new designs, which explore the themes such as light and its sources, ceramics, textiles and more, every three months, you are bound to happen upon something you love. Each item’s characteristics will bring a unique experience to your home, gift-giving or reading.

 

LMAKbooks+design is excited about the current exhibition Light Enlightened by Studio Susanne de Graef. We are proud to feature her highly acclaimed Rhythm of Light Collection and her latest light objects: Glint Light Collection. It was successfully shown at Salone de Mobile in Milan this past April and is now for the first time presented in the USA.

Both collections,  the Rhythm of Light and Glint Light engage with dispersion of light, creating a grand impact with minimal use of materials. Materials are used in unconventional and inventive ways, searching for the boundaries of what is possible. Details and tactility play a vital role. Both collections maintain a sense of past, drawing from the sun and antique fashion, while maintaining a contemporary outlook with the development of artificial light (read more).

Susanne de Graef graduated in 2010 from the Design Academy Eindhoven. In 2010 she founded Studio Susanne de Graef, a product design studio in Eindhoven with a sincere predilection for textile and light. Her work is inspired by architecture, fashion, and natural phenomena.

The exhibition is supported as part of the Dutch Culture USA program by the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York and is part of NYC x Design, 2017

LMAKbooks+design is housed on the second floor of LMAKgallery.
