The Future Perfect presents Fragments as a Design Curio at Design Miami/, December 2nd – 6th, 2015. The installation includes new and exclusively commissioned work from Dutch designer Lex Pott and New York-based Calico Wallpaper, created in collaboration with The Future Perfect founder David Alhadeff.
Fragments is an immersive display of Lex Pott’s new works in stone framed by a custom handmade gradient wallcovering made from the same stone by Nicholas and Rachel Cope of Calico Wallpaper. The wall design is being hand-applied on-site at Design Miami/, creating a holistic environment and allowing visitors to see the performative process as it develops.
Calico Wallpaper was founded by Nicholas and Rachel Cope. The installation offers a dialogue between nature, with naturally broken forms, and industry, with polished planes of traditionally manufactured stone. The wallpaper design is hand-created on-site at Design Miami/, allowing visitors to see the process as it develops.
