Nature plays hide-and-seek in interactive installation at Vienna Design Week
Austrian designer studio mischer & traxler appeared with a second installation after their successful and beautiful presentation in Victoria & Albert Museum at London Design Festival. Both the Curiosity Cloud, shown a few weeks ago in the British capital, and the Ephemerā presented at Vienna Design Week are born for Perrier-Jouët’s commission. The champagne house is deeply intertwined with the age and style of art nouveau, and they invited the designers to translate this heritage to a contemporary setting through a series of installations. Presented for the first time at Design Miami last December, and taken now to the Festivalzentrale venue of Vienna Design Week last week, Ephemerā is a celebration of beauty portraying the delicate relationship of humans and nature. The installation consists of an oak table and two mirrors, decorated with shapes of leaves, flowers, and insects. The creatures come into interaction with the viewer, as, depending on human proximity, they start moving, either exposing themselves or hiding on the furniture’s surface, leading to an interactive game of hide-and-seek. Shown for the first time in Europe, the installation is now being transferred to its permanent home, Perrier-Jouët's maison Belle Epoque in Epernay, France.
