WERKSCHAU ’14

[WERKSCHAU ’14] INTERIOR DESIGN for MANNHEIMER KUNSTVEREIN *mannheim

the rough character and the clear heart! the faculty embodying its creation and inevitably its environment: industry- and university-city in inter- and counter-play with its culture.

six meters high steel walls overtopping both stories of the building, stretching the room within its height, channel the audience through gates, along its depth. all exhibits lie on concrete socles or lean on the steel construction, demonstrate the idea of fast pace and authenticity. the used materials are free of any cosmetic intervention, based on their purpose and – just because of that – suitable for a worthy presentation of the student works.

all theatrics comes from basic optical rules which let the room appear bigger and lighter than before, despite of the added five tons of weight. it persists through the haptics of its substance, tells of rhythm and rigor. steel and concrete, the rough as carrier for the subtle.

BARCELONA

[BARCELONA] TYPEFACE *barcelona

BARCELONA is fast, against, sexy! she is both nonconformist and darling: she comes with around 700 glyphs in five weights, basic opentype features, and is prepared for all latin (+greek) languages.

she is a lover to a firm kind of impulsive energy – arose out of a twelve week working mania. she is a tilted grotesque; geometrically settled, but with a humanistic draw, which increases in the heavier weights. her nature is very much about the letting go and catching of curves and edges; about inconstancy and how it can »awake« things.

barcelona prefers the billboad to the novel, loud places to the seen ones. she is a protest! she is sometimes a diva when leaving the house, never without that little chic: here she is, to be used with courage!

– it smells like alcohol and hot shimmering air. rosalía sings »catalunya« and the new revolution starts heralding here from the balconies: with the deep buzz and the wild drumming on pots and pans!

DISPARITY

[DISPARITY] AW2018 LOOKBOOK PICTURES FOR LEON EMANUEL BLANCK *paris

Leon Emanuel Blanck’s AW2018 collection is discourse in the tension between black and white, acceptance and rejection, radical extremes. The collection leaves little room for grey areas, reminiscent of the contemporary political landscape that resonates throughout the world.Crafted through hard contrasts, uniform swaths of colour and complete desaturation, the seams and sutures of this collection play a most pivotal role. A role that is only furthered though binding the meticulously sourced materials that form each of his pieces: precious alpaca wools, cashmere blends, mink and pony hair, robust horse leathers, resin treated corduroys and waxed heavy cottons.The conflicting discourse reaches to the core of the collection; it’s tailored pieces and elegant shapes being in perfect balance to open linings, rough edges and aggressive seam work. Further fortifying the DNA of Leon Emanual Blanck’s ANFRACTUOUS DISTORTION

WERKSCHAU ’14

[WERKSCHAU ’14] INTERIOR DESIGN for MANNHEIMER KUNSTVEREIN *mannheim

the rough character and the clear heart! the faculty embodying its creation and inevitably its environment: industry- and university-city in inter- and counter-play with its culture.

six meters high steel walls overtopping both stories of the building, stretching the room within its height, channel the audience through gates, along its depth. all exhibits lie on concrete socles or lean on the steel construction, demonstrate the idea of fast pace and authenticity. the used materials are free of any cosmetic intervention, based on their purpose and – just because of that – suitable for a worthy presentation of the student works.

all theatrics comes from basic optical rules which let the room appear bigger and lighter than before, despite of the added five tons of weight. it persists through the haptics of its substance, tells of rhythm and rigor. steel and concrete, the rough as carrier for the subtle.

BARCELONA

[BARCELONA] TYPEFACE *barcelona

BARCELONA is fast, against, sexy! she is both nonconformist and darling: she comes with around 700 glyphs in five weights, basic opentype features, and is prepared for all latin (+greek) languages.

she is a lover to a firm kind of impulsive energy – arose out of a twelve week working mania. she is a tilted grotesque; geometrically settled, but with a humanistic draw, which increases in the heavier weights. her nature is very much about the letting go and catching of curves and edges; about inconstancy and how it can »awake« things.

barcelona prefers the billboad to the novel, loud places to the seen ones. she is a protest! she is sometimes a diva when leaving the house, never without that little chic: here she is, to be used with courage!

– it smells like alcohol and hot shimmering air. rosalía sings »catalunya« and the new revolution starts heralding here from the balconies: with the deep buzz and the wild drumming on pots and pans!

DISPARITY

[DISPARITY] AW2018 LOOKBOOK PICTURES FOR LEON EMANUEL BLANCK *paris

Leon Emanuel Blanck’s AW2018 collection is discourse in the tension between black and white, acceptance and rejection, radical extremes. The collection leaves little room for grey areas, reminiscent of the contemporary political landscape that resonates throughout the world.Crafted through hard contrasts, uniform swaths of colour and complete desaturation, the seams and sutures of this collection play a most pivotal role. A role that is only furthered though binding the meticulously sourced materials that form each of his pieces: precious alpaca wools, cashmere blends, mink and pony hair, robust horse leathers, resin treated corduroys and waxed heavy cottons.The conflicting discourse reaches to the core of the collection; it’s tailored pieces and elegant shapes being in perfect balance to open linings, rough edges and aggressive seam work. Further fortifying the DNA of Leon Emanual Blanck’s ANFRACTUOUS DISTORTION
