The little treasure-hunting stories, the mysterious maps that come out from inside green bottles, the pirate's blades covering their eyes, the wooden leg, are very intricate in ours childhood memories.
The clay pieces by André Teoman, present in the exhibition "Tesouros de Barro", seem to evoke these "mementos".
André Teoman Studio presented two experimental novelties, Jack, a lamp family and Rapunzel, a full body wall mirror at Tendence. Besides the novelties you could also find the Zoo Collection and the Pico lamps at the studio booth at the Talents area Stand D81 in Hall 9. This is the fair where retailers and buyers from large trading organizations come to order the must-haves for a successful autumn/winter season and the coming spring/summer 2019.
A visual insight about the story behind the Jack lamp family.
“F**K all these cables” – said Jack! (and everyone that uses electronic devices)
In a time where we need electric cables for everything and get tangled with them, Jack stages the problem of cable chaos in a humorous way, instead of hiding it. This lamp family can be rearranged and even composed as you wish since the object and the cable interact in all different sorts of ways depending on how you compose the mesh.
