Schwein gehabt!
Vögele Kulturzentrum

Schwein gehabt!
Vögele Kulturzentrum

Cagnotte is shown in the exhibition «Schwein gehabt. Von der Sparbüchse zum Leben auf Kredit.»
DE: «Sparen galt lange als eine Schweizer Vorzeigetugend. Doch was ist aus ihr geworden? Hat sie sich in den letzten Jahrzehnten nicht zusehends ins Gegenteil gekehrt?
Arbeiten zeitgenössischer Künstler, dokumentarische Alltagsobjekte, szenische Installationen wie auch mediale Beiträge inspirieren zur eigenen Interpretation und zur grossen Diskussion über ein faszinierendes Thema, das uns wohl alle beschäftigt.»

16. November 2014 to 22. March 2015

Joule

Joule

Presented during the Milan furniture fair and now available as Edition, «Joule» is a mobile formed by abstract pans jointed together. It expresses the interdependence of different systems and natural balance.
If any weight is applied, or if the mobile is touched, it will move briefly until it rights itself again and finds a new balance. The work is an object of reflection on the fragile interrelations within nature, the balance of the economy, and balance in our lives.

Cagnotte

Cagnotte

Brand new and now available in our Shop! «Cagnotte» is a money box whose shape is modelled on that of an acorn. Coins are inserted through the slit on the underside. The wooden shell closes the opening and gives the acorn a stable stand.
Saving doesn't mean sacrifice; it's a challenge to ration available resources in a sensible way. To get to the savings, the acorn must be smashed, but only the saver can decide when the time is right.

Le petit GRAND

Le petit GRAND

We are happy to invite you to the group exhibition «Le petit GRAND» during Milan design week. We will present the two new Projects Joule a hanging sculpture and the money box Cagnotte, which both put the spotlight on the reflection of our acting.
The mobile Joule is an object of thoughts on the fragile interrelations within nature, the balance of the economy, and balance in our lives. The fragile dependency of weight and counterweight, the effect of the small on the whole system; in short, cause and effect are played out poetically in this work.
Cagnotte is a money box which shows that saving doesn't mean sacrifice; it's a challenge to ration available resources in a sensible way.
