Original artwork by Atelier Cph. The sculpture is handmade out of recycled wood and white clay.
For the ‘Align’ exhibition held at the ALIUM gallery, Atelier Cph has been experimenting with architectural lines and geometrical shapes. With this in mind, they created an assembly of cubistic and geometric shapes where both vertical and horizontal lines meet.
“It’s been exciting for us to start working with and create 3D objects as it comes as a very natural next step to the prints that we have been creating for years. When we create new artwork, we focus a lot on calmness and balance. In a world where we constantly get overloaded with images, we want to create pieces with a good balance in form and colours that doesn’t create too much noise or asking too many questions.”
Atelier Cph is a Copenhagen based design studio established in 2012 by trend forecaster Sara Ingemann and art director Mandy Rep. Atelier Cph is a space for artistic expression and creative development in the heart of Copenhagen. Their work has a high focus on tactility and quality where experimentation with different techniques, textures and materials is essential in their work.

“For this exhibition, we were inspired by architectural lines and sketches. Architecture tells so much about the history of places and it is tightly linked to different art movements. We are very inspired by modern architecture that merged in the 20th century, for example, De Stijl, Bauhaus, Brutalist architecture and Constructivist architecture. At the same time, we find great inspiration in the minimalistic but artistic approach from these times architects and artists. All this inspiration we have translated into our new 2d and 3d pieces where we experiment with tone on tone colours, geometric shapes and different techniques.”
