Misseu — 'Una-tre', 2022
Floating hand blown glass lamp mounted on polished aluminium base. A striking floor light or table lamp.
Misseu is a Melbourne based experimental design studio exploring the intersection between art and design. Misseu aims to question the conventional notions of design, dismantle people's perceptions and reframe to evoke further thought.
An ever-evolving practice specialising in the medium of glass, Misseu utilises traditional venetian manufacturing techniques modified to modern interpretation. Combining innovation with tradition enables the studio to push boundaries of conventional practice, creating pieces that reconsiders traditional design philosophy.
Each piece's sculptural form reflects that of science fiction, organic matter representing new life. A beautiful mistake, a paradox in itself; their alluringly inconsistent abstract form is unique in nature and subverts the classical notions of beauty.
Misseu aims to reconsider the future of the world, whilst acknowledging its place in it.
As a participant in the inaugural Melbourne Design Fair, Craft Victoria will present a curated collection of the most exciting makers in Australian craft and design. The exhibition will feature 13 makers working across ceramics, textiles, glass and metal, including textile artist Anastasia La Fey, ceramic artist Belle Thierry, textile artist Caro Pattle, ceramic artist Danielle Thiris, furniture and lighting designer Dean Toepfer, artist and experimental designer Jessie French, metalsmith Kenny Yong-Soo, multidisciplinary artist and weaver Lisa Waup, glass artist Misseu, ceramicist Owen Rye, ceramicist Vanessa Lucas, and ceramicist Yoko Ozawa.
Makers will come together in an immersive installation with emerging practitioners featured alongside established designers, showcasing creative ingenuity and material mastery.
Initiated by the NGV Department of Contemporary Design and Architecture and delivered in collaboration with the Melbourne Art Foundation, the fair is a new platform for the craft and design community to bring their collective creative energy together and sell one-off, limited edition pieces in a unique, cultural experience over five days.
