Cosmic Quilt Furnishings
The amazing art installation presented at the Model Citizens NYC exhibition is the statement of modern aesthetics and art. The Cosmic Quilt art installation also comes with addition of furnishings and comes as light fixture of an unusual kind.
Interactive art installation
Designed by New York based Principals company, the Cosmic quilt is an interactive art installation that communicates with the visitors as they approach. Inspired by the astrophysics and art designs, the Principals have reached the stars with its masterpiece. However, not only the Principals design studio is responsible for this project. Along the way came 20 design students, from Art Institute of New York who also participated in the project.
The Cosmic Quilt is not only an art installation to gaze upon, it is also a philosophical concept presenting the matters of mind and matter. It is equipped with tiny microcontrollers with sensors that are activated at a presence of a visitor, that way it interacts with a human. Think about it deeper, the concept of the interacting furnishings in the future, what would it be like, would it be communicating with its creators?
Holding these thoughts in mind, the Principals and co have developed some furnishing line to go along with it. Consisting of only three pieces, this furniture line bares reminiscence of the Cosmic Quilt design. The first presented set is a Quilt Coaster set, 3 triangular pieces, made of oiled oak. Quilt Fruit Bowl, also featuring the triangular shape has a cosmic quality to it, as it slightly tilted. And the last one is the bigger piece, the Quilt Side Table, which is also a triangular shaped table on the triangular legs. The amazing Cosmic Quilt furnishing line, along with the interactive art installation produced deeper thoughts of what our future will look and how will feel like.
