2016 - Klein Agency was awardedone of five best bar designs for the Biennale Interieur in Kortrijk, Belgium. Along with the other winners, the bar will be built and presented to the guests of the Biennale 2016. The concept is organized around the simple directive of Made vs. Found.
A grid of objects. Half found, and half made. Positioned on a raised platform, 9 objects sit on a grid of steel brackets. Using the forest as a medium, the grid of objects is a mixture of found tree stumps and made digital wood stumps.
Exposing the dichotomy between objects sourced directly from nature and those undergoing a process of man or machinic manipulation, the space invites visitors to explore these two realms.
Made physical through the furniture and offered menu, the juxtaposition of the two concepts, Made vs. Found is presented.
