Units - Design im Netz der Teile


Module.MGX Tables Showcased at “Units – Design im Netz der Teile” in Münster, Germany

What are the individual parts that make up a pattern and how do they fit together? From March 15th to May 31st you can see a visual representation of this at the “Units – Design im Netz der Teile” exhibition at Sparda-Bank in Münster, Germany. A few of the Module tables, a .MGX piece by WertelOberfell in collaboration with Matthias Bär, will be on display at this exhibition, sitting among other high-profile designer pieces. Based off the Fractal.MGX coffee table, the design is a study of geometry and nature, starting at the base with strong branches that eventually split becoming delicate twigs that form a dense tabletop. This table truly shows what is possible with 3D Printing, as the table would not be realized in this form without this technology.

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts Acquires Bloom

.MGX is pleased to announce that the Bloom lamp by Patrick Jouin has joined the permanent collection of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA).  Winner of both a Good Design and Red Dot Design Award, the Bloom table lamp collapses or expands, changing from a bud to a blossom, to release or contain light.

Patrick Jouin is one of the major protagonists of contemporary design on the French and international scene. In 2004, Jouin first became aware of 3D printing which, until then, had only been used for small “scale models” in plastic. Together with .MGX, Jouin took the entire process to a previously unheard of level, creating forms that were once thought impossible to produce.

Since its founding in 1860, the MMFA has acquired nearly 36,000 objects from antiquity to today and is one of the most visited museums in Canada. The museum also has the Fractal.MGX table by WertelOberfell and the Solid C2 chair by Patrick Jouin in their collection.

The Bloom table lamp (inv. no 2013.90.1-3) was a gift to the MMFA from Dr. Brian Stonehocker in honor of Rosalind Pepall, Curator at the MMFA from 1991-2012.

.MGX at Maison&Objet Paris

The Algue.MGX lamp by Xavier Lust was featured during the recent Maison&Objet fair in Paris as part of the exhibition 'Beyond'. Maison&Objet is an innovative and inescapable show for international buyers and the press, with several exhibitions on unique themes presented throughout the fair. Curated by the NellyRodi Agency, 'Beyond' showcased trends along the concept of a strange and wondrous journey through seabed and space, and featured organic, prismatic, futuristic and robotic shapes. Algue.MGX, inspired by Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, was a perfect addition to this showcase.

“Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital”

From October 16th until July 6th, the exhibition “Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital” will be running at the Museum of Art & Design (MAD) in New York City. Displaying the pioneering works of more than eighty international artists, architects, and designers, “Out of Hand” is the first major museum exhibition to examine the impact that digital fabrication is having on artistic expression. Represented will be some of the most compelling creations from the past decade ranging from sculpture and furniture to fashion and transport – many of which were produced through 3D printing by .MGX and Materialise. Furthermore, on the occasion of Materialise’s inclusion in the exhibition and in recognition of the company’s commitment to technological innovation and 3D printing, Materialise and its CEO Fried Vancraen will be among those honored with a “Visionaries!” award by the museum at a special gala on November 20th.

Through “Out of Hand”, MAD aims to explore the monumental shift in the way human beings understand creation, from the earliest objects conceived and produced by individual makers through to the tools of technological innovation. Today’s digital fabrication methods, such as 3D printing, give individual artists, architects, and designers the ability to go beyond the traditional boundaries of production and produce objects that may otherwise be impossible to realize. Artists, architects, and designers who have collaborated with .MGX and Materialise in the creation of pieces for the exhibition include: Bathsheba Grossman, Naim Josefi, Dror Benshetrit, WertelOberfell, Aranda/Lasch, Softkill Design, Stephen Jones, Jan Habraken, and last, but certainly not least, fellow “Visionaires!” award honoree, Frank Stella.
