Lane Crawford, Asia’s iconic luxury department store, invites customers to contemplate the conscious use of the imagination in ‘Artistic Expressions’ – its latest collection of artworks displayed in store and online. Bolstering its commitment to scouting new creative talent and selecting exclusive edits for its Asian customers, Lane Crawford will showcase a series of original, one-of-a-kind artworks by artists from around the globe between March 25 and April 24, 2019.

 

L’OBJET Haas Brothers Collection


 

 

It is artistic expression that fuses imaginative minds and skilled hands. Inspired by the otherworldly landscape of California’s Joshua Tree National Park, Los Angeles-based artists Simon and Nikolai Haas reworked their family of characterful creatures in close collaboration with Elad Yifrach, Creative Director of L’OBJET, to create a collection that spans tableware, home décor, textiles and fragrance. The collection is available exclusively at Lane Crawford in Asia, “When deciding where and when to take the fantasy world of L’OBJET Haas Brothers, Hong Kong during Art Basel was top of our list. We have such a rich history with Lane Crawford, who I know will create an incredible experience for its luxury Asian customers”, Yifrach added.

 

 

Art Meets Design

 

 

Connecting art and design, Australian curator Emma Elizabeth brings together eight design talents, including Adam Goodrum, Alex Fitzpatrick and leading design studios such as Skeehan and Stellen Workshop, to present a collector’s edition of the most innovative Australian design through a global exclusive lifestyle collection for Lane Crawford. This one-of-a-kind collection includes decorative objects and sustainable furniture and will be showcased to an international audience during Milan Design Week.

 

 

 

“It is an honour to have our work presented in Lane Crawford, the destination of discovery, and to be part of their vision to present the most contemporary art and design to the world”, Adam Goodrum said. “For us an object that is artfully designed is one that is both beautiful and useful. In other words, design is art made practical. We felt that it was this shared approach that attracted us to Lane Crawford. Stop & Smell the Roses was made exclusively for the Artistic Expressions programme and has offered a wonderful opportunity to share Volker Haug Studios playful and functional aesthetic with the Asian design community”, Volker Haug Studio said.

André Fu tapped into the world of lifestyle with the establishment of André Fu Living in 2016. Fu began his foray into product design by collaborating with unique artisans personally selected by him. Known for his modernist sensibilities and distinctive ability to bring a calm simplicity to interior spaces, the global exclusive debut collection from André Fu Living encapsulates key elements of his style.  Inspired by his childhood memories of significant places and different cultures, the collection celebrates Fu’s own nomadic life and his personal experience of the world of hospitality.

 

 

“The essence of hospitality revolves around the creation of experiences. When people host guests at their homes, I hope the pieces contribute to their experience and act as a backdrop to a celebratory moment or simply integrate into people’s everyday lives.  To me, true luxury is in the experience and not just the aesthetics.’ says Fu.

The collection encompasses a total of 150 items designed to decorate every room of the home with understated elegance to provoke emotions. Initially, it features two design languages – Artisan Artistry, inspired by the artistic expression, and Vintage Modern, a range inspired by the geometric patterns typically featured in 1960s Modernist architecture.

FROM MAN-MADE TO HANDMADE

As we become increasingly aware of reducing our environmental impact, “sustainable” and “eco” have taken on new meaning as design terms associated with the innovative, contemporary and creative, and waste reduction has become a hot- topic.

 

Sydney-based homeware brand Dinosaur Designs is a studio that has always done its part, and before it was hip to do so. Founders Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy met as students in Sydney and soon discovered their shared love of art and design. “In the early stages, we started making clothing and jewellery, and we eventually focused on jewellery,” says Olsen. We experimented with different materials from brass to Fimo, and then we found resin.”

 

 

 

More than 30 years later, and with resin at the core of the brand’s DNA, Olsen and Ormandy aim to incorporate sustainable design in all aspects of production. Resin is a by-product of the oil industry, and by repurposing the material, says Olsen, they aim to “create beauty from a material that could have been treated as waste”. Moreover, says Olsen, “our designs are handmade. We’ve always been mindful of the environment, in our designs and in the making.”

 

In fact, the pair takes constant inspiration from nature. “There’s something beautiful about the time things take to evolve in the natural world,” says Olsen. “Many of our forms are organic; you’ll notice the prevalence of forms and colours inspired by the land, sea and sky.”

 

 

Fortunately, the qualities of resin allow Dinosaur Designs endless possibilities to create new shapes and variations. “Working with resin is like working with paint, but it has a wonderful viscosity that allows us to cross the boundaries between sculpture and painting, so we can create pieces that we think of as visual poetry. The hand-crafting process gives each piece the slight differences that make it unique, so the result is very tactile, like a three-dimensional poem that you read by touch.”

 

Olsen and Ormandy also aim to ensure that the brand takes responsibility for its environmental footprint. “Just as experimentation and innovation are important when it comes to design, we’re continually focused on minimising the impact of our production processes. We constantly monitor our energy consumption and look for ways to minimise it. We’ve recently overhauled our water processing system to further reduce our consumption. The aim is to have a completely closed system.”

 

Impressively, Dinosaur Designs’ studio and stores all run on green energy, without greenhouse gas emissions. The company also collaborates with environmental causes including The Australian Conservation Foundation, 1 Million Women and food charity Oz Harvest.

 

The growing number of labels embracing this approach chimes with an increased awareness of, and appetite for, sustainability. When all of these elements come together – and in something as tactile as jewellery - they create something so alive and authentic that it adds meaning and soul to your everyday wardrobe.

MY LOVE OF CLAY

I started taking pottery lessons in high school and was totally obsessed after the first class,” says Victoria Morris, Founder of Victoria Morris Pottery based in Los Angeles. “I love the combination of the tactile, highly focused mental and physical experience of throwing, with the immediate gratification afterward of having made a functional object from a ball of clay.”


Morris is expressing a sentiment shared by many artisans; indeed, clay is one of our most ancient and loved materials.


Auckland-based sculptor Gidon Bing, is also a fan of clay’s immediacy. He creates deceptively simple, reductionist, works of art using experimental processes, represented in a select range of ceramic, metal and print works. “Concept to realisation can happen very rapidly, which is great for spontaneous conceptual work as well as rapid prototyping of more complex forms,” he says. “And I love its capacity for endless variation both in methods of construction, material and glaze and finish.”

 

 


Some of the material’s characteristics are just as appealing to users as makers, according to Bing, such as “its foundation in antiquity and our cultural heritage”. Morris goes further. “I think all handmade pottery is imprinted with the energy of the maker, and it’s that very quality that I believe translates into the unique feeling one gets when they hold handmade work of any kind. I love that there’s always an element of surprise with small studio pottery - the firings are all unique and different, so it’s virtually impossible to make any two pieces look the same.”


 

 

 

But raw material must be worked with the right process, and both are inspired by traditional manual craft. Bing’s creations combine this with a distinctly modern approach. “My steam wood bending methods and plaster model and mould making techniques are very traditional, but I often complement them with methods like laser cutting and 3D printing - this enables me to produce forms that have the tactility and boldness of hand-crafted objects with the precision that’s sometimes required for forms or objects that have human function.”

 

 

For her part, Morris creates her pieces uniquely by hand. “Every single piece is thrown on the wheel, trimmed, glazed and fired by me,” she says. “So I’d say each piece is quite personal and one of a kind.”

 

 

 


 

Morris’s and Bing’s works feature in store alongside charming, organically shaped pieces by Mt. Washington Pottery, geometric vases as part of Lane Crawford global exclusive collections and architecture-inspired creations by L’Objet. These beautiful ceramics will perfectly complement the showcase at Lane Crawford ifc mall by fashion industry veteran Leena Similu, a Lane Crawford Creative Call Out finalist from Los Angeles. Similu's studio Yaya Situation produces ceramic pieces inspired by her childhood summers amid the exotic landscapes of Cameroon.
