During the Maison & Objet 2015 fair, KKDC invites Bardula Studio to showcase a selection of recent works which uses LED light as medium. The exhibition will take place from September 3 to January 3, 2016, at the KKDC gallery, 20 Passage Dauphine in the historical 6th arrondissement of Paris.
The opening will be held on Monday, September 7, from 6pm to 9:30pm.
The gallery will be attended exceptionally Saturday September 5 and Sunday September 6 by the artists of Bardula Studio from 11am to 7pm.
This exhibition, between sculpture, jewellery,design and architecture, is made of abstract geometrical installations and light art. It reveals changing volumes, depending on perspective and LED colour. The entire space is an interaction between light, matter, reflections and volumes.
Next to the KKDC/OBUMEX showroom designed by French star architect Joseph Dirand, the KKDC gallery is an exhibition space dedicated to light.This space is offered to light artists and designers, who can use it to express their own creativity as long as it is inspired by light :
-a creative place to showcase the most innovating ideas, mirroring the light products conceived and manufactured by KKDC.
-a place of partnership where the principle of sharing ideas between a manufacturer and an artist is the essence of the spirit of the KKDC gallery. KKDC opens its doors to emerging as well as established artists.
-a place of display for the pedestrians to see, in this street shaded with trees and secluded from time. It is an ode to light, creativity and boldness, and of crossing boundaries.
Since 2005, KKDC is an established manufacturer, designing and producing a wide range of specialist LED lighting solutions for high end architectural markets worldwide.
Research and manufacture take place in their expanding Korean facility outside Seoul, with product design and technical marketing services from KKDC Design House in London, with offices in New York, Kyoto, Beijing, Auckland, Sydney… and continuing to expand.
KKDC was discovered in France at the opening of their first Parisian office in 2009. Today, KKDC works together closely with architects, light conceptors and designers, with projects worldwide. Their light sources illuminate luxury hotels and prestigious boutiques, private houses, exhibitions, museums, bridges… where the designers lead them.
Xcube, an aerial installation, uses light to build a volume inspired par its wave-like nature, which is found in the shapes of the laser-cut brushed aluminium.
Hexagon and Hyperspace, made of mirrors, where the captured light spread into an infinite reflection : the repetition of a two-dimensional picture gives the impression of a perspective that extends into the wall, beyond the mirror.
Hexagone II,Hexagone III et Square I, made of backlit translucent prints, where the lines follow an helical mathematical progression and create an optical illusion.
Earth installation, in brushed aluminum, recently commissioned for the private collection of the Baccarat Hotel New York, a project led by interiors designers Gilles & Boissier.
Mixed media backlit print of Air, from the 5 Elements series (private collection, Baccarat Hotel New York, interior design Gilles & Boissier).
The Studio has its origins in an encounter between a visual artist/silversmith (Bardula) and an architect/scenographer in Paris back in 2003.
Their work reflects the former’s passion for geometric abstraction and investigations into weightlessness and transparency, and the latter’s fascination with new technologies, in particular 3D and light.
