01 MEET KATCHI


Self Portrait

I CAN BE A ‘HANDFUL’ The separated fingers resemble open-mindedness & “free spirit”. You are able to think “outside the box” and enjoy variety. You are constantly searching for opportunities & are not ruled by conventional methods.

The small angle created between your index and thumb reveals that you do not react, you analyze and respond. You don’t rush you thoroughly think before you take action.

The joining of your head line & life line at the beginning indicate that a strong sense of mind rules over body.

The wider angles created at the top near the middle finger represents a person who tends to look for those whose status rises above their own,& has great respect for them. If such a line is very straight and parallel to the Head Line, then it shows strong emotional control.

Special markings on this line indicate Specific events which occurred in your life. Youth, represents adult, old age.


02 THE MEN BEHIND THE MASK

Haute Couture IN THE FLESH “We can isolate ourselves from the whole scene, which is relaxing. We have the room to create.”_ROLF


The Lovely CUT We believe that couture should be a field for experimentation.


04 V & R LOVE

‘Twist’ THE FAMILIAR

Our clothes designs are hard-edged but very soft at the same time — we like to twist the familiar.

05 V & R LOVE V & R

RECOGNIZED symbols Essentially, in its earliest incarnation, Viktor & Rolf the label made statements rather than clothes. Horsting and Snoeren indulged creative flights of fancy.


Experimentation and showmanship Creating a interior which has similar ‘cutouts’ to make a intense visual impact t well as reduce mass and volume.

Art is very important. I TEND TO Present MYSELF in an art-related Context than in a fashion context.

Personal sketchbook notes and drawings Many of these fine art/ fashion images become the inspiration for My interior related sketches. The forms are so refreshing and unique every time.


“I think we have an Ambivalent

Relationship with this Element in fashion. On the one hand, there’s something really horrible about this tension of having to do something, but on the other

hand there’s something very stimulating about it,

Knowing that you have to go on, you have to create. There was this ambition and conviction that we wanted to work at the highest level possible.”

Everything is IN FLUX A continued flow ; When I am most successful my sculptures have the look and feel of floating form


17 FOLD OVER


Not a Perfectionist, AN ABSTRACTIONIST Perhaps this is why I gravitate to aluminum as my preferred material, and why from childhood on, I have been especially fond of the works of Miro and Calder


18 SOFT & LIGHT

I understand the importance of finishing touches and small details, but these come secondary to the feeling, the work of art conveys to the viewer. I want it to be more than what meets the eye at first glance.

23 CHROMO COLOR

Le Interview

The field of color psychology Attempts to Identify the effects of color on human emotion and Activity.

The science of color is sometimes called chromatics, chromatography, colorimetry, or simply color science. It includes the perception of color by the human eye and brain, the origin of color in materials, color theory in art, and the physics of electromagnetic radiation in the visible range (that is, what we commonly refer to simply as light). R.S. Berns, Principles of Color Technology, 3rd Ed., Wiley, New York (2001).


It’s Chromotherapy

For the timid AT HEART

Tone things down with monochromatic blocks of color or go the safe black and white route. Black and white can be just as graphic as bright color combinations.


NO


OS Monochromatic COLOR BLOCKING This understated technique may be a great way to ease into the Color blocking trend.


26 FOLDED


Form SENSITIVE

Instead of contrasting colors this micro trend is all about sticking to the same color family. Reds and Pinks. Blacks and greys.

Structural colors are colors caused by interference effects rather than by pigments. Color effects are produced when a material is scored with fine parallel lines, formed of one or more parallel thin layers.

DY Introducing the KURVEN CHAIR This chair was created by designer Cody Stonerock utilizing bent plywood, White Oak veneer, and leather


27 KURVEN TALKS

Experimental meets ELEGANT The skin is sewn on each end into the loop. This allows for easy assembly and dismantling as well as some choice material seats.


Kurven Chair is made of bent plywood, White Oak veneer, and leather. It also features a fiberglass reinforcement. The leather seat can easily be attached or detached from the chair. It’s also backed with a canvas material to prevent stretching.

Feels like your LIVING ROOM ?

The Seats can be easily installed or released from the chair.

GAB


BO The artist, the sculptor NAUM GABO Was a prominent Russian sculptor in the Constructivism movement and a pioneer of Kinetic Art.


22 HAND MADE

So so MSACULINE THE UPPER CREATED HERE IS HAND CUT FROM ONE PATTERN WHICH CAN BE STRETCHED OVER THE FOOT AND STRAPPED ON TO CREATE A VARYING AESTHETIC.


29 GABO’S THEORY Gabo began to experiment with kinetic sculpture

19 20

In the manifesto Gabo criticized Cubism and Futurism as not becoming fully abstract arts and stated that the spiritual experience was the root of artistic production.


The essence of Gabo’s art was the exploration of space which he believed could be done without having to depict mass. His earliest constructions such as Head No.2 were formal experiments in depicting the volume of a figure without carrying its mass.

A ‘Realistic Manifesto’


30 GABO’S THEORY

“When masculine is used to describe men, it can have Degrees of Comparison—more masculine, most Masculine. The Opposite can be Expressed by terms such as unmanly. A typical nearsynonym of masculinity is virility. Roget’s II: The New Thesaurus, 3rd. ed., Houghton Mifflin, 1995.

Alright, HE DID IT AGAIN His influence was important to the development of modernism within St Ives.


Rich colors ONE PATTERN

Men throughout history have gone to meet exacting cultural Standards of what is considered Attractive.


31 GABO’S THEORY

Le Interview


Acute AWARENESS

In his work, Gabo used time and space as construction elements and in them solid matter unfolds and becomes beautifully surreal and otherworldly.


32 GABO’S THEORY

Naum GABO “The real stuff of Gabo’s art is not his physical materials, but his perception of space, time and movement. ‘


Rythmic INTERIOR In fact, the element of movement in my interior resembles strong sculptural sentiments of rhythm, more implicit and deeper than the chaotic patterns of the drawing itself.

The Danish artist, Merete Rasmussen who predominately works with one-off sculptural forms in stoneware clay. She has lived and worked in London since 2005. Merete is interested in the idea of one continuous surface, with one connected edge or line running through the whole form. Clear, clean shapes; soft smooth curves in contrast to sharp edges;
