Janne Kyttanen at Collective

One of the most compelling aspects of strolling through Collective Design Fair, which took place last week in New York, is the discovery of new design and those creating it. The Fair, established four years ago, has come to present the up-to-date collectible design, with a great focus on contemporary work. This time, I was immersed by furniture in polished aluminum, bronze, copper and stone, by Finnish, Los-Angeles-based designer Janne Kyttanen, presented by Gallery All. Unlike those designers ‘borrowing’ digital technology in the process of creating, Kyttanen, a digital sculptor himself has been at the forefront of 3D printing technology for many years, as his studio Freedom of Creation has provided services for designers and architects. In this new series of furniture, Kyttanen has succeeded in creating dazzling pieces of fantastic forms by combining digital process with the most traditional sand molded casting. His objects are characterized by minimalist sensibility and various structures of mesh. While Kyttanen’s first piece was unveiled by Gallery All at last year’s Design Miami fair, at Collective Design Fair, his extended collection was showcased, demonstrating his ability to expand the personal language and to create objects that stand on the line between complexity and simplicity.
