ATELIER DE YAVORSKY
Opening Reception: Saturday March 14, 6:00 - 9pm
On view through April 14, 2020
Dot Fiftyone is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition of design firm ATELIER DE YAVORSKY at the gallery. “Quite Functional: Dialogues on Design” includes a selection of objects suitable for living or working that reflect on ideas of quality as well as sustainability and re-utilization. In their works, ATELIER DE YAVORSKY emphasizes a strong connection with nature and true materials.
Their practice is based on the appropriation and employment of existing elements in their surroundings. The first part of the show is concentrated on recent furniture that includes solid and raw materials with a certain sophistication and modesty. A second part of the exhibition is dedicated to design pieces made of totuma or tapara, a wooden fruit which in Venezuela, Colombia and Panama is often used as a domestic recipient.
ATELIER DE YAVORSKY consists on siblings Guillermo and Alexandra De Yavorsky. Guillermo is an architect and interior designer. Alexandra is a graphic designer. ATELIER DE YAVORSKY is based in Miami.
