    NEXT EXHIBITION: October 1-30 2010 at the MODA.

     Artist and Designer Kristofer Laméy premieres an exclusive collection of his limited-edition works at the Museum of Design in Atlanta during the entire month of October.

    For the first time, hand-selected pieces culled from private collectors will be installed and showcased to the general public during this exclusive engagement.  Kristofer will be present daily to explain and demonstrate his works for the duration of Atlanta’s Design Week.

    “My design ethic requires that the materials used in my work are chosen for a reason.    It’s necessary for me to understand their nature. The goal of each piece is to apply the properties of the materials within it to create a unified, lasting and irreducible
    form. This way each piece becomes a part of the whole, and each element supports the others in a relaxed state."

    I ask two basic questions of any serving form: Does it meet my needs? And if so, is the quality of the form going to last for a lifetime? If the answer is ‘yes’ to both, then I believe as a designer, you’re able to create a work that can be defined as ‘truly sustainable.’

    SERVING FORMS is a term I use to make sense of the objects in my environment that I use every day. I challenge the viewer to examine the relationship they have with the objects they use in their environments- and ask themselves: are these forms serving me? Or am I serving these forms?
