10 Highlights of Miami Art Week 2019
Anthropomorphic chairs by Alexander Diaz Andersson and two-dimensional brass works by Andreas Diaz Andersson.
On a Cloud:The Mexico City-based studio Atra debuted in the Curio section at Design Miami with a new series of pieces called “Following Matter,” created by Mexican-Swedish designer Alexander Díaz Andersson and his artist brother Andreas. Drawing on their own dichotomous identities, they explored the intersection of art and design and anticipated the future with pieces that blend clean Scandinavian lines with whimsical elements of traditional Mexican design. Covered in raw boiled wool and set on a polished brass base, Alex’s anthropomorphic chairs were designed to appear to be floating like a cloud, while Andreas’s trompe-l’oeil two-dimensional works are made of oxidized brass to create the effect of visual volumes that pay tribute to Oscar Reutersvärd.
