Ignotus Nomen Shelf by TP Vineeth

TP Vineeth’s second animation puts François Bauchet’s Azo table in perspective: its immaculate tabletop very simply laid atop its single X-shaped leg. In the Azo collection, François Bauchet explores the possibilities of hybrid materials, and their effect on essential colours. Here, the table, made of concrete, resin and sand, takes on an organic form, which is reflected by the subtle graining across its white surface.

n.28 Oggetti lenti Serie by TP Vineeth

For her last animation, TP Vineeth looks at Pierre Charpin’s table light no. 28, from his ‘Oggetti Lenti’ (slow objects) series.

‘I have designed a collection of vases, lamps, boxes, centrepieces […] that are less well defined’, Charpin said of this series. Table light no. 28 typifies this statement, as it takes on a hybrid appearance, combining all mentioned typologies into a single object.

Signal F2 Monochromatic by Jens Mennicke

With Jens Mennicke’s first animation, looking at Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby’s ‘Signal F2 Monochromatic’ floor light. In this animation, Jens plays with the lamp’s two ashy conical shades, as these move up and down its white, glossy structure. A nebulous fog surrounds the object as if to emphasise its mysterious presence.

Hieronymus Metal by Jens Mennicke

In this new animation, Jens sets Konstantin Grcic’s metallic ‘Hieronymus’ in a shimmering black desert - as if echoing the object’s otherworldly nature. Indeed, in his ‘Hieronymus’ collection Grcic asks us to reconsider our relationship to space: what makes a space intimate, pleasant or conducive to study? Here, Jens takes these reflections a step further by bringing Grcic’s hybrid seating-object in a space devoid of indications of space and time; as a result, one must imagine their own context for ‘Hieronymus’.

3-legged stool by Jens Mennicke

In Jens Mennicke’s third and final kreo in motion animation, Jasper Morrison’s emblematic stool forms from flowing drops of metallic liquid, into a solid three-legged structure. Morrison’s piece, materialising the archetypal form of the stool, is an exercise in simplicity. With ingenious mirror plays and rhythmic tones, Mennicke’s brings light to its essential design, deconstructing and constructing it in turn.

602 by Kirill Pyrev

To start off the series, Kirill has picked Cini Boeri’s beautiful table light from 1968. This retro-futuristic ‘602’ model was designed by Boeri, and produced by Gino Sarfatti’s light company Arteluce. Its main body, made of rigid industrial PVC piping, includes a system that allows the main arm to pivot. Kirill’s animation highlights the lamp’s slowly evolving body, as well as its unctuous finish.

Game On Side Table by Kirill Pyrev

Playfulness is at the centre of Kirill’s second animation, as the motion designer composes a delightful image of Jaime Hayon’s equally playful ‘Game On’ side table, with a lively and rhythmic tune. In this animation, Kirill deconstructs an imaginary slab of marble to reveal Jaime Hayon’s patterned side table, composed of Carrara white marble. The repetition of the circular geometric pattern all along the table creates a striking contrast with the natural veins of the marble.

Jellyfish by Jean-Baptiste Fastrez

Up and down go the blue tentacles of Jean-Baptiste Fastrez’s ‘Jellyfish’ chandelier in Kirill’s last animation. Fastrez’s ‘Jellyfish’ light, composed of a white polycarbonate lampshade and blue anodised aluminium pendants, suggests the shape of the eponymous water creature, whose umbrella-shaped bell here has swapped its natural luminescence for an electric light, running down the sides of geometric metallic tentacles. With a dreamy sound to accompany the motions of the marine animal, Kirill proposes a wondrous last animation to close his participation to the kreo in motion series.

SDOOW4L Desk by Marco Serraca

In this first animation, Marco Serraca sets Jasper Morrison’s ‘SDOOW4L’ desk against an atmospheric nude background, drawing attention to the piece’s simple construction and polished contours.

M.C Side Table by Marco Serraca

Marco Serraca’s second animation interprets Pierre Charpin’s ‘MC Side Table’ — a generously curved Marquinia black marble structure playfully adorned with a Rosso Francia marble ball. In the animation, Marco sees the red ball rolling to its elevated counterpart, resulting in a beautiful two-coloured marble composition.

608 by Marco Serraca

In his third and last animation, Marco Serraca brings life to Gino Sarfatti’s ‘608’ table lamp from 1971. Playing on the minimal and essential design of the desk lamp — made up of a black base and a large, frosted light bulb — Marco pays tribute to the Italian master’s ingenuity, still an important source of influence for designers of today.

Facet Bottle — Day by Roy Veldkamp

Roy Veldkamp re-imagines Hella Jongerius — Day’ ‘Facet Bottle’ as light-diffused molding blocks slowly falling into place. The blocks create a facetted surface pattern on the object, just like Hella’s paint crosses over different textures of the ceramic vase.

Mini Satellite 3 by Roy Veldkamp

Roy Veldkamp's second animation focusing on Pierre Charpin’s ‘Satellite’ mirror. Forming part of Charpin’s eponymous collection of polygon mirrors, the present piece boasts a triangular reflective surface bordered by three honey-yellow frames. With his cadenced animation of floating satellites orbiting around the centrepiece, Roy enhances the playful and rhythmic dialogue between the mirror and the colourful frames.

Signal C1 polychromatic by Roy Veldkamp

Roy Veldkamp’s last animation looks at Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby’s 'Signals’ collection, and specifically the ‘Signal C1’ Polychromatic ceiling light. Roy envisions Edward and Jay's lamp as a host of attraction between geometric shapes, together creating a harmonic synergy of sounds.

Facet Vase — Ancient Greece by Nicole Peterson

Nicole Peterson takes Olivier Gagnère’s glossy Facet Vase — Ancient Greece as subject. In her animation, the object twirls into shape, before becoming adorned by shiny protruding domes in golden and white finishes.

Dyade by Nicole Peterson

Nicole Peterson’s third animation transforms Julie Richoz’s ‘Dyade’ lamp into a mesmerizing geometrical fantasy. In Nicole’s animation, the ‘Dyade’ is envisioned as a black structure in rotation, with a luminous central element deploying in accordion-like motion. The nude and pastel backgrounds against which the object is set suggest a domestic space for the tall ‘Dyade’, shedding light on its functional nature.

Stargate Swing by Nicole Peterson

In this animation Nicole Peterson animates Jean-Baptiste Fastrez's magical Stargate Swing. Fragmented pieces of the glossy swing structure fit together as we see it during the day and at night.

Embryo by Jake Tyas

In this animation, Jake Tyas illustrates Marc Newson’s iconic 'Embryo chair'. Monochrome, glitchy water-like blotches bubble into shape to slowly make up the 'Embryo chair'.

Hymy side table by Jake Tyas

Initially inspired by Jaime Hayon’s 'Hymy' side table, illustrator and motion designer Jake Tyas plays with the anthropomorphic quality of the piece by transforming it into a character, surrounded by a gang of similar-looking creatures. In the short, the characters fill the screen, fighting for space as they expand until ultimately popping like balloons, one by one. Only the central character remains and slowly deflates, to finally transform into Jaime's Hymy side table.

Bench 165 by Jake Tyas

In his third and final animation, Jake Tyas illustrates Guillaume Bardet’s 'Bronze Bench'. His hand drawn character morphs from shape to shape until finding ultimate happiness in the form of the bench.

Fraction Dining Table by Eléonore de Valera

Eléonore de Valera’s animation, slowly revealing the geometry of Pierre Charpin’s ‘Fraction’ dining table top. Defined by intersecting segments separating four sections of enamelled lava stone, Charpin’s table top feels at once organic and vibrant — brought to life by Eléonore’s hypnotic sense of line and colour.

2095/9 by Eléonore de Valera

In Eléonore de Valera’s animation, Gino Sarfatti’s ‘2095/9’ ceiling light appears in radiant and haptic form — its bulbs like a river of beads falling in a spiral, against a distinctly vibrant purple ground. Eléonore de Valera composes the wires first, and then the bulbs, one by one in simple lines, in a signature chromatic style — finally revealing the succession of bulbs that constitutes Sarfatti’s delectable piece.
