Isamu Noguchi at the Museum Ludwig, Cologne

"Everything is sculpture" opined once Isamu Noguchi.1 But is it? The exhibtion Isa­mu Noguchi in the Mu­se­um Lud­wig, Cologne, allows one to engage with, reflect on, immerse yourself in Isamu Noguchi's life and work, and thus to better approach your own...

smow Song Contest 2021

After a long, challenging, year the smow Song Contest finds itself exactly where it was: Rotterdam. Not just the location, but the stage, the decoration, the costumes, even the bier en frieten exactly as they were twelve months ago. The decisive, defining,...

smow Blog Design Calendar: August 5th 1899 – Happy Birthday Mart Stam!

...And also reawaken an interest in furniture design: Stam and Bruchhäuser agreeing a never realised cooperation, while in 1979 Thonet released with Stam's S 67 a reworking of Marcel Breuer's S 64, and also developing a prototype for a cantilever wingbacked armchair... The S 67 F is on page 213, but also appears to be the similar to a proposals for TECTA (page210/211) and also a 1938/39 chair for Thonet (page 143) Essentially Stam takes Breuer's single piece chair and separates it into frame and armrest segments, and that, arguably, not particularly elegantly, the vertical tubes behind the backrest tending to stand there a bit lost...

Passagen Cologne 2020: Generation Köln trifft Bregenzerwald

...Originating in context of the German/Dutch design project Maken/Machen, and premiering at Dutch Design Week 2017, Generation Köln shouldn't be confused for a formal group, far less a collective, but much more is a platform for presenting some of Cologne's local designers, or localish designers, designers with a connection to Cologne, and which in its current, and most recent, incarnation features Karoline Fesser, Klemens Grund, Tim Kerp and Thomas Schnur... A quartet who for the 2019 Generation Köln project cooperated with carpentry businesses in Austria's Bregenzerwald, Bregenz Forest...

smow Blog Design Calendar: December 10th 1869 - Thonet Relinquish Solid Wood Bending Privilege

...On December 10th 1869 Gebrüder Thonet voluntarily relinquished their 1856 Privilege in respect of "The manufacture of chairs and table legs made of bent wood, the bending facilitated by the action of steam or simmering liquids"; thereby ending not only a thirteen year monopoly during which time Thonet became a firmly established global brand, but also the culmination of a neigh on three decade story which highlights the importance of patent protection in the furniture industry... A carpenter by trade, Michael Thonet began experimenting with bending wood veneers in his native Boppard am Rhein in the early 1830s, and therefore at that period when veneer was not only becoming increasingly popular in Europe, but when the introduction of mechanised production methods was making it ever more readily and cost effectively available; as such, one can understand his experimentation as an attempt to develop processes which allowed for meaningful expressions of the potential of that material, if you will to allow carpentry to move in new directions, for all in terms of furniture production...
