The beauty of imperfection
What particularly distinguishes Sven Odermatt’s work is the way in which he not only tolerates imperfection, but also uses it as a creative element. He stages and amplifies controlled irregularities, which leads to a certain logic of color variations, streaks, and sequences.
The Designer sets the individual color design in conscious contrast to the industrially shaped furniture elements, which consist of 10 mm thick aluminum plates and have visible screw connections. This creates an interesting tension between manual work and industrial production, between one-offs and mass production.
Between art and design
It is impressive to see how Sven Odermatt explores the boundaries between art and design, individuality, and standardization in his diploma project "Color Bath". His work shows how craftsmanship and creative design can lead to a fascinating result.
