This show is a little off the beaten track in Milan, however, the journey is well worth it. Charles Kaisin's exhibition Design in Motion presents all his work and research he did from 1999 to 2009, linked to two themes: motion and recycling. Production pieces are accompanied by research models.
The installation TERREMOTO (meaning "earthquake" in Spanish), presenting the objects, is designed by Spanish artist Terre Recarens. It consists of a floor of wooden lathwork, positioned in Japanese style, with a set of deliberately slanted shelves. When people walk over the floor boards the shelves are set in motion, start to wobble and cause the glass objects placed above to jangle, fall and break. Hence all the broken glass. A fun installation with great work, particularly interesting is the design process shown.
Brit Leissler lives and acts between London and Berlin. After receiving a Master degree in product design from the Royal College of Art in London she started her own Shoot the Stylist! design studio. She also works as a design educator for various institutions and founded Punch'n'Cuddle Ltd., producing and distributing her own products.
When taking a break from the design world she writes, sings and composes quirky electronic pop or travels the planet. Brit loves all forms of eccentricity, joins up the dots and aims to get into interesting conversations with all kinds of weird and wonderful people. As a hardcore digital camera gunslinger she shoots everything that moves and grooves. She doesn't eat animals, is hot for cheese, loves the Kensington Squirrels, robotic dance moves and life enhancing ideas.
