    Museum of Design Atlanta Presents

    Serving Form by Atlanta Artist and Designer Kristofer Laméy


    October 1 – 30, 2010


    Atlanta (July 20, 2010) – Concurrently with Atlanta Design Week (October 23 through 30), the Museum of Design Atlanta welcomes Atlanta artist and designer Kristofer Laméy for a special showing of new and collected works throughout the month of October. Laméy’s “Serving Form” features sculptural light and multi-use furniture created from materials like aluminum alloy, Baltic birch, rare earth magnets and LED lights.


    The show will run October 1 through 30, and Laméy will be present daily during Atlanta Design Week October 26 through 30 for live demonstrations. The demonstration schedule will be available at


    Laméy works intimately with the properties of each material he chooses in order to create a unified, lasting and irreducible form. In this way, each piece becomes a part of the whole, and each element supports the others in a relaxed state. A single completed lighting sculpture may include from 12 to 1,000 custom-made parts, which house bulbs and LED lights connected to a low-volt current, making illuminated, eye-popping works. 


    “I ask two basic questions of any serving form,” says Laméy. “‘Does it meet my needs? If so, is the quality of the form going to last for a lifetime?’ If the answer is ‘yes’ to both, then as a designer, I believe I am creating something that is truly sustainable.” Laméy drafts, cuts and molds each part, then hand finishes them before adding them into the overall design of the piece.  “Serving Form is a term I use to make sense of the objects in my environment that I use every day,” he says. “I challenge viewers to examine the relationship that they have with objects in his or her life and ask whether the forms around them are serving or being served.”
