JONATHAN MUECKE AND BAS PRINCEN
Sophie Krier (Ed.)
A new series from designer Sophie Krier looking at processes emerging on the frontiers of design. Every “field essay” is a renewed attempt to formulate a visual grammar for design research. In this issue, the work of American furniture designer Jonathan Muecke is juxtaposed with the architectural photography of Dutchman Bas Princen. The Cranbrook educated Muecke creates boldly imaginative artifacts—such as his series of carbon fiber chairs—that probe the realms of our perception and make us more aware of its mechanisms. Princen, on the other hand, frames built and un-built landscapes—where typologies blur between office park and science fiction monolith, for example—to dramatic effect. Both create visual propositions that “make room” in the space between what we construct and what we experience.
