NYC-based creative studio TRNK recently launched a virtual exhibition called “REND” that features digitally-translated furniture by international designers. Evoking metal and stone forms, the works on virtual display include steel-based seating, marble tables, and plush upholstery. Participating designers include Seoul-based artists Sisan Lee and FICT Studio, Mexico-based Disciplina Studio, and TRNK Collection.
“While each designer ultimately reached very different design languages, the chosen works shared similar elements of tension and contrast in materiality that I really wanted to investigate further,” said Tariq Dixon, founder of TRNK. “I hope the show challenges viewers to examine designs with varied lenses – to perhaps borrow these designers’ perspectives to reconsider the objects and materials that they interact with every day.”
The exhibition also signals a new chapter for TRNK, offering clients access to studio-made objects in a surrealist atmosphere. The classical architecture staged for the presentation offers a dreamy, textural scenery against the digital interpretations of metal and stone.
The “REND” virtual exhibition is available to check oout on TRNK’s website.
