Victor Hunt Designart Dealer
Our services focus on the search for, issue and sale of limited editions by the most remarkable emerging designers, operating as a profound platform for development and documentation supported by an international promotion and exhibitions program.
Since the gallery’s inception in 2008, the collection has grown throughout all object typologies, representing a carefully curated collection of cutting edge contemporary design.
We understand designart as the grey zone between industrial design, crafts, architecture, sculpture, conceptual, installation and many other arts but applied to or at least suggesting objects of use - developed and manufactured with the utmost care.
The Lumière lamps appropriate contemporary projector technology while paying homage to the pioneers of the medium. The double meaning of Lumière – referring to both the French word for light and the inventors who popularised modern cinema – reflects its dual function. Acting alone, each lamp lights up through the projection of moving images on the inner surface of the glass bulb. Acting in multiples they orchestrate into a cinematic spectacle. Commonplace Studio is the Netherlands-based design practice of Jon Stam and Simon de Bakker, whose work focuses on context-driven objects, quality craftsmanship and quiet interactions. The studio frames autobiographical content, while addressing contemporary issues such as the increasing lack of tactility and other challenges posed by the digital. Commonplace Studio works in both an autonomous and commercial context. In 2013 the Studio was awarded the Designers of the Future Award at Design Miami/ Basel.
