As partners, collaborators, and designers Mara Tschudi and Sebastian Marbacher share a deep appreciation for shape, color, and expression. With Formal Fusion the independently working pair once again demonstrates that Beauty and Functionality are to be found in daily, accessible materials such as wood and paper. Take the stackable Basic Chair by Marbacher, sit down in front of Tschudi’s artwork, and hold in your hands their collaboration, the multicolor peppermill. The relationship is tangible, delightful, and smart. Coming together in this exhibition are mostly unique pieces which have been locally handcrafted by the two artists-designers. The aim was to fuse the individual competences and aesthetics to create a shared formal world. An ephemeral world which will continue in thought, practice, and ritual—sitting, looking, holding.

The work “MAGNETIC” is inspired by underwater life structures merged with the
fascination of magnetic collisions and fracturing. The inner shape attracts coloured glass particles that collide, shatter and fuse together on the outside leaving semi-melted floating glass on its surface. The sculptures interact with each other through its figuration and nuances. This process of glass magnetism creates infinite patterns and surfaces revitalizing the rigid nature of the material.
This series is based on a larger research over the years on underwater life and its colours.
“In the past two years I started focusing on new approaches of the outer surface life of glass. Challenging the material I’m assembling an object that redefines the conventional way of working with glass. The applied colours in multiple layers interfuse
with the core of the object. This unique “glass - magnetism” of colliding, shattering and fusing particles makes each object and sculpture of this series unique.”

Laurin Schaub creates functional porcelain objects with a deconstructive perspective on "materia prima" and "alchemy". He is inspired by the idea that nothing exists without being composed of small units and at the same time integrated into a larger whole.
His poetic play with forms, structures and color opens up an abstract perspective on the aspect of the simultaneity of connectedness and being separate.
