Volax

Large, almost perfectly round grey rocks dot the plateau and slopes around Volax, a tiny village on the island of Tinos, Greece creating a quite stunning sight and an unexplained unique geological phenomenon.

 

The show explores a collection of life-size objects further inspired by the boldness and presence of the granite formations on the landscape, and for the first time in the Studio’s material language use wood to create a highly tactile and sensual domestic environment.

Volax

In our work, we have been interested in abstraction through the formal and material investigation, simplicity, and juxtaposition, not of materials themselves, but of their characteristic properties guided by general notions and spatial qualities such as: solid and void, opaque and transparent, rigid and malleable, natural and artificial.

 

Through the concepts of defamiliarization and illusion we manipulate perception through spatial exercises and gestural forming creating objects, mono-material or often by the articulation of more disguising their weight, softness, structure: a volume resting upon another, a light tube seemingly bent or a see-through inflatable appearing as solid and heavy.

 

Volax is a group of light and seating elements at various scales. They are centerpieces uniquely perceived as one move around them. Solid wood elements are carved to imperfect rounded formations are often combined with rigid glowing acrylic volumes that emerge from within them or from the room elements within with they are placed.
