‘ East meets West ’ by Tonio de Roover is a sofa that invites people together to sit, talk or read. In visual sense, ‘East meets West’ a sculptural object, an item that refers to a flying carpet that want to rise from the earth. It is reminiscent of the ‘tales of a thousand and One Nights’, thus heralding a connection with non-Western cultures. The simplicity of the shape and the materials used to emphasise this image.

Tobias Hantmann’s painting has developed from large scale canvases and collages to ink drawings on dryed leaves and finally to monochrome carpets on which he drew geometric shapes or still life-like imagery with combs or rulers. In his most recent works he juxtaposes painting and photography. Based on the notion of simple mirror-effects on ordinary steel pots the artist realized ideosyncratic ensembles of this kitchenware . The pots are turned upside down and put on pedestals which make them appear as if they are hovering few inches above the floor. The backsides of the pots are covered with a thin layer of oil paint imitating the mirror-effects of the metal in sometimes unusual colors. Independent from any specific exposure to light, the mirror-effects now seem to be inscribed into the objects. (via Contemporary Art Daily)
