Not that long ago, August in fact, we featured the work of designer Mathis Pfäffli and mentioned that he and his collective Detektiv Bureau were in the middle of a residency in Chicago. Well they’re still busy over in The Windy City but have just sent through some absolutely stunning images of what they’ve been getting up to since we last spoke.
This vibrant installation has been constructed throughout the group’s living and working space, covering walls, floors, ceilings and furniture and transforming their habitat into a sensory barrage of movement and colour. Crafted from painted polythene the colourful surfaces create a flimsy membrane that breathes with the ebb and flow of air through the space, meaning no surface is ever wholly still. We think the visuals speak for themselves – simple, stunning stuff!
