Harmonious Proportions” Opens at Tuleste Factory for NYCxDesign Week 2023
Tuleste Factory, the Chelsea contemporary design and art gallery, opens “Harmonious Proportions” today. The much anticipated exhibition features the works of both current artists and new additions to the gallery’s roster, with special curations by Ceren Arslan and creative agency Mother New York. The exhibition is part of NYCxDesign week 2023 and includes new installations across 5,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, including 3 rooms, two floors and a terrace.
“Harmonious Proportions” is a celebration of artistic diversity, showcasing a range of works that explore the themes of balance, symmetry, and form. The exhibition brings together 23 designers and artists for their own thematic approach to the concept of harmony, drawing inspiration from various sources, including nature, architecture, design and mathematics.
Among the artists featured there will be new works by Ian Alistair Cochran, Lyora Pissarro and the Allaux Brothers in collaboration with Facture, Joseph Conrad-Ferm, Timbur and Yonathan Moore. New Factory artists will be presenting works including Camila Varon, Diaphan, Sol Bailey Barker and Sten Studio by Jose Schnaider. Yonathan Moore will be launching his second collection of Optical Monuments, introducing two new designs: the Totem floor lamp and the Megalith hanging lamp.
A special curation “EXIT Room #002: Dalmatian Blue” is presented for the first time by spatial designer and artist Ceren Arslan, known for her work with Kelly Wearstler and in the digital space with EXIT. The curation name references darker shades of porsche, the dalmatian blue is a handsome setting of a home in a dalmatian pattern. Curated with select designed objects, the room will mimic a typical apartment setting in an immersive monochromatic format. Flattened out at first sight, the room receives its dimension as the visitors enter and become part of the work.
Creative agency and disruptor Mother New York present their “Bliss” sofa for the first time to the public on the second floor of the gallery. Bliss is a handcrafted, one-of-a-kind, art statement and design piece. Part of a conceptual line of floating furniture, the Bliss sofa and ottoman set is designed for a world where rising sea levels make the idea of floating furniture increasingly relevant. The tagline implies that one can live blissfully indifferent to the world’s struggles, while in reality, we should all do the exact opposite. With a satirical lens, the art piece aims to highlight the imbalance between people with means and those without, during times of catastrophe. Twenty percent of the purchase price will be donated to the USA for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, contributing to critical discussions about our collective future.
Tuleste Factory has a reputation for showcasing some of the most exciting and innovative contemporary design and art in New York City. “Harmonious Proportions” is a visually stunning and thought-provoking experience, providing a fresh perspective on the relationship between art, design, and harmony.
The exhibition for NYCxDesign Week will be open to the public by appointment starting today and will run until July 20, 2023. For more information about the exhibition and Tuleste Factory, please visit tulestefactory.com. This NYCxDesign Week maybe the best one yet!
