Design
Where form meets function

After recently dropping the EXOPLANET CANDLE, Daniel Arsham’s Arsham Studio is back with yet another artful offering, the Hollow Figure.

Based on Daniel Arsham’s Architectural Anomalies exhibition, the piece showcases the appearance of a figure that is shrouded in fabric, which is actually revealed to be empty when seen from behind. This iteration is a scaled-down version of the larger works that he has sculpted for the series.

In addition, the accompanying Instagram posts below show Arsham experimenting with the sculpture’s sizing via augmented reality.

Scale shift has me thinking…

Furthermore, Arsham shared his first Hollow Figures in 2010. “Sculpted as if a figure was concealed under a plane of fabric, the forms are actually a void on the back, revealing the negative impression of the figure,” the artist captioned.

This first edition Hollow Figure just dropped on Daniel Arsham’s website for $950 in limited quantities, and sold out within three minutes.

Up next, Swatch teams up with HODINKEE for a minimal Sistem51 Blue Edition watch.
