Milan – In anticipation of the Energies Unseen exhibition at this year’s Salone Internazionale del Mobile, LS:N Global caught up with designer Marjan van Aubel to find out more.

As a designer, Van Aubel looks to ‘develop new materials and technologies, working between the fields of design and science’. The exhibition will show two of her pieces, Moonlight and Current Window. Moonlight is a collection of self-expanding pieces of foam porcelain and Current Window combines classic design techniques of stained glass with modern technology of solar panelling to create a modern interpretation of the stained glass window.

In conjunction with van Aubel, designer Jólan van der Wiel will be present his work in Energies Unseen – through their work both artists are looking to expose unseen energies while playing with the principles of nature. ‘Very often, new technology is driven by efficiency, not the user,’ Van Aubel told LS:N Global.

LS:N Global will be reporting live from Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan, so keep an eye on our Seed and Shows sections.
