Antarctica was created as part of Fredrikson Stallard’s ‘Elements’ Exhibition at Collective Design Fair. The Antarctica collection captures the visceral action and immediacy of hacking away at blocks of ice. This moment of violence in the natural world is frozen in stillness in the resulting forms of the furniture. The raw inner qualities of the pieces juxtapose with the smooth surface finish, catching the light in a way that alters the appearance of the piece and the environment around it. Fredrikson Stallard describe this effect as “painting with light”.
