Korban/Flaubert is a design and production partnership between Janos Korban (b.1961), a metalwork specialist with a background in psychology and genetics, and architect Stefanie Flaubert (b.1965). Focusing on collaborative investigations into materials, structure and spatial relationships, they produce a range of eclectic furniture and lighting, as well as more ambiguous forms and large site specific space/sculpture commissions for commercial and private clients. Their work has been exhibited in Australia, Europe, the U.S., the U.K. and Japan, and right now you can see it in the exhibition Freestyle: new Australian design for living, currently touring Australia, and two solo shows in New York, Automatic and Korban/Flaubert: Growth patterns, which take place during the annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF).
Automatic is an installation curated by Sebastien Agneessens of Formavision, opening 19 May at the Diesel Denim Galllery in New York.
Korban/Flaubert: Growth patterns is organised by MOD – Modern Objects & Design and opens 20 May at 723 Washington Street, New York.
Freestyle: new Australian design for living is on show at Object Gallery and the National Art School in Sydney until 13 May, and opens at QUT Art Museum in Brisbane 1 June.
