This morning we featured Korban/Flaubert’s stunning LED-powered Weblight [2], and figured such innovation and eye-catching aesthetics warrant a bit more information. Lucky for us, the art/lighting duo will be showing an array of their work at the Art+Industry Gallery [3] in Palm Springs, where we also discovered Johanna Grawunder’s [4] Innovative Lighting [5] during the Dwell on Design [6] conference last December. The exhibition, titled “Growth Patterns [7],” opens next week, February 15th, and with an intriguing mix of geometric and organic forms, the work does not disappoint. This will be Korban/Flaubert’s [8] first solo show in the US.

The design and production team of Korban/Flaubert [9] was founded in 1993 by metal specialist Janos Korban and architect Stephanie Flaubert in Stuttgart, Germany and is currently based in Sydney, Australia. Korban/Flaubert consider their workshop a laboratory in which to experiment with design geometry and scale, both macro and micro, while producing functional, art forms that enviably, can be mass-produced. They describe their often not predetermined lighting and furniture designs as ‘a process of discovery’ always looking for new ways of ‘interaction with objects through reconfigurability, surprise and transformation.’
