Jennifer Keusgen

‘Textiles always have material and immaterial properties and the different levels of how textiles and clothings consciously and unconsciously shape and influence our everyday life is the subject of my research and design practice.The cushions and carpets are a collective project and reflect the impressions of a summer by the sea.’

 

Helena Tapajnova

‘Helena Tapajnova is an artist/designer cuttently working and living in Basel (CH). Her praxis is standing between art, design, and artistic reserch, focusing on material research, practice-based experiments, and handcraft of porcelain and glass. As a designer, Helena’s interest is occupied by hancraft and the understanding of technology combined with a cocncept designing autonomous,unique objects of everyday usage. They ech tell a story and therefore posses added value.

At Curly corner, Helena presents unique objects of everyday usage like glass and porcelain cups, vases, and bowls. Each handmade product tell a story to the sensitive viewer about the value of craftsmanship in the digitalized era.’

Pascal Decaillet

‘The body plays an important role in connecting the mind. I bring attention to what we don’t perceive in our night-time routine trough these objects made of glass. Awake our senses before we unwind and disconnect. A series inspired by the origin of the night. They are vessels to your own personal Altar.’

Before moving to Basel to study Integrative Design, Pascal Decaillet worked as a fashion and costume designer. Working with different materials without losing sight of the body, although not directly on it, is still part of his exploration.
