Lot No. 21


A “Liquid Carbon Bench”, designed by Ross Lovegrove*


, Great Britain, 2007, for Patrick Brillet Fine Art Limited, London, carbon fibre, milled urethane, height 60 cm, length 295 cm, width 94.5 cm, height of seat 32 cm. (DRAX)

From the limited edition of 10 + 2 A. P.

Thanks to its special material the “Liquid Carbon Bench” is enormously stable, despite its extreme length and thin moulded seat, which would prompt one to believe the opposite.

Provenance:
Patrick Brillet Fine Art Limited, London; private collection, Austria

Lit.:
M.-A. Brayer, Ross Lovegrove. Convergence, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 2017, p. 67; P. Antonelli, Supernatural: The Work of Ross Lovegrove, New York 2004, pp.184/85 (Liquid Series)

“The piece explores the nature of the material and form-making technology in milled foam and carbon skinning. It is a method of convergence; aligning the digital process with the high and rarefied craft of manual carbon surfacing. This combination achieves an incredible sense of taught dynamic, like a technical skin over a vacuum.” (P. Brillet).

“It’s only the future if it can’t be made.” (Ross Lovegrove)
