zuckerhosen Solo Exhibition

Our showroom re-opens with the eponymous zuckerhosen exhibition, debuting the first collection from the experimental studio art and design duo.

Featuring bespoke, one-of-a-kind, seating, tables, lighting and wall pieces, the zuckerhosen Solo Exhibition, presents 'modern partial artifacts'. Through the experimentation of materials including steel, clay, glass, wood, leather, gold and metal leaf, the provoking forms of zuckerhosen simultaneously recall feelings of the familiar and unknown. Viewing and contemplating each ethereal object, the collector transforms into an archeologist, feeling as though artifacts from a lost culture have been unearthed - their intended use and meaning somehow obscured.
