News: Grey Malin shoots iconic pieces by Eameses in French Polynesia

Photographer Gray Malin is reconsidering the way we traditionally experience design objects through his latest series ‘art of living’. in the pristine turquoise waters of french polynesia, malin has conceptualized an iconic selection of mid-century modern furniture set atop a reflective mirrored platform — refracting an abstract tableau of both the pieces, and the surrounding landscape.
Malin has situated archetypal mid-century modern designs by charles and ray eames atop a floating 15 foot square mirrored platform handcrafted with the help of local engineers. emphasizing the form of the furniture, ‘art of living‘ was photographed from a vantage point where the colossal mount otemanu presents a symmetrical and stunning backdrop. by situating stylized interior design elements in an unexpected outdoor setting, the series places natural and manmade beauty side-by-side, asking viewers to interpret the art of design in a new way.
