Design studio Haberdashery and artist Julian Abrams launch Freq to celebrate 2013's summer solstice

LONDON.- Haberdashery, the multi-disciplined Hackney-based design studio, will celebrate the Summer Solstice with a selection of their exclusive light sculptures in Freq., an exhibition at Hoxton Gallery at The Arch, London, from 21st – 27th June.

The works and photographic prints form part of a larger body of work generated in collaboration with photographer Julian Abrams, in a wholly united collaborative process. Together they have produced 6 sculptures and 10 editioned prints capturing the complex patterns of these sculptures.

Inspired by the composition of geometry of light, Haberdashery have used primarily LED’s (a light-emitting diode) and polished stainless steel to produce the six sculptures on show, each with varying patterns, from the highly complex to the very simple. Eliminating formal representation and focusing purely on the behavioural properties of light, this collection represents a mesmerizing other world.

ArcFrequency, an edition of 3, is a unique interactive sculpture. This seemingly monolithic hemisphere has a single, small porthole through which to view the interior. Hypnotic reflections take over, and the composition evolves from a sedate calm to a psychedelic storm. The lines between macro and micro become blurred as the patterns of colours and geometry are equally recognisable, as those seen through both a microscope and a telescope. ArcFrequency is one of two sister sculptures exploring this otherworldly theme.

Collaboration is employed every day at the Haberdashery studio for their varied commissioned work, which can range from projects with luxury interior designers, to the recent Medical Research Council’s centenary exhibition held at Imperial College, to a public lighting project for the outer London neighbourhood of Crickelwood.

Daniel Siden, co-founder of Haberdashery, says “We are very excited to present this special body of our own work. For Freq. we wanted to get back to basics, exploring the simplest forms and their interactions with light. Our collaboration with Julian resulted in childlike play and experimentation, where we were looking to assemble elements that evoke a strong response within all of us, one of wonder.”

The exhibition opens on 21st June, the Summer Solstice, a keystone moment for the interplay of geometry and nature.

Haberdashery and Abrams have successfully worked together for several years. They are both influenced by artists including Bridget Riley, Yayoyi Kusam, Chris Levine, and the Bauhaus. These influences are present in the subtle modernist aesthetic which underpins all of the exclusive sculptures in Freq.

6 light sculptures will be displayed alongside 10 photographic prints.
