design file KRIS RUHS


Artist and designer Kris Ruhs used Salone del Mobile to showcase his exploration of form and light, a new collection entitled ‘Resonance’.


Among the creative sprawl of this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan, was a pocket of stylish chic from designer Kris Ruhs. Taking up residence in the Galleria Carla Sozzani, Ruhs presented Resonances, a capsule col- lection of four pieces that had been hand- made by Marzorati Ronchetti in exclusive runs of six editions per design. Born in New York City, Ruhs attended the School of Visual Arts where his strong abil- ity to bring out the expressive potential of structure through a wide variety of materi- als has allowed him to successfully cross the usual boundaries between the three dimen- sions of scupture, collage and wearable art, and the fine arts of his two dimensional paper works and paintings. Light is a key element in much of Ruhs’ work, either in the form or function of each piece. Typically, Ruhs uses the way light plays on surfaces to add visual layers to


his pieces, endowing passive metals with movement.


Here he explores three resonances of form that have already been touched upon in his past pieces, namely ‘the organic’, ‘the circular’ and ‘the identical’. Among the limited edition pieces is the Flower lamp, a tall illuminated tower of acid finished steel inished in acid treatment steel. Its height is dependen on the number of units used (9 units -1690mm; 12 units -2120mm; 15 units 2555mm). Also on display at the Galleria was a mosaic-like wall composed of Lights units. Each square unit – finish, again, in acid treated steel – measures 300x150x300mm. Units come in single squares or in blocks of three or nine. The Galleria wall (pictured) was composed of 24 units of nine. www.krisruhs.com www.marzoratironchetti.it
