“Gritty, wild stuff”, is how Schloss Hollenegg for Design and mischer'traxler studio describe the tangible objects that their investigations of the role of design and its relationship with our natural environment have uncovered for the exhibition NATURPHILIA. All of the works on show strive to find a balance between the natural and the artificial, between the technological and the ecological – and, as a result, attempt to enable these various dimensions to coexist. They demonstrate design that anchors nature in our daily life: not the romanticized, censored, domesticated version of nature, but precisely that rough and wild one that is mentioned above. By interpreting and questioning the relationship between people and nature, the exhibition seeks to challenge our perception thereof.
The exhibition features projects by mischer’traxler studio, Charlap Hyman & Herrero, Marlène Huissoud, Klemens Schillinger, Arvid&Marie, Jonas Edvard, Odd Matter, studiotut, studio b severin, Sander Wassink and Evalie Wagner.
