Steel & Design Process: In Conversation with Korban/Flaubert

^^

When: Wednesday 20th February
Where:
Australian Design Centre, 101-115 William Street, Darlinghurst
Time: 6pm-8pm
Cost: $15 / $10 Concession

The directness and confidence in the work of Korban/Flaubert has evolved through a dedicated and involved material investigation. Pushing the limits of metal’s physical and expressive potential whilst challenging their making capabilities, the creative team of Janos Korban and Stefanie Flaubert have created a distinctive practice that spans furniture design and sculpture. They have developed both a national and international reputation for their works in both stainless and corten steel. Wishing to create works that have a sense of fluidity, energy and motion Flaubert spends hours creating models in studio. The unforced and expressive nature of these models are further interpreted by Korban in the workshop where he utilises his impressive making capabilities bringing the models to life in metal. Andrew Simpson talks in depth with Korban and Flaubert, uncovering their design processes.
