Bar Cart

December 17th, 2013



The Bar sculpture by Martin Oppel is part of a series of sometimes functional metal sculptures. Flickering between worlds, their position, their function, as art or design object is often in question, and thus defy definition. The permanent leaning (tipsy) form negates the materials rigidity, while perhaps suggesting the act of drinking, as itself a form of abstraction.

MARTIN OPPELMartin Oppel lives and works in Miami and New York.

His work has been included in numerous group exhibitions nationally and internationally, such as The 2nd Athens Biennial, “Weather Reports” at the Ecole Regionale des Beaux Arts in Rouen, France, “The Station” Curated by Shamim Momin and Nate Lowman in Miami, FL, “Kabul 3000” at Galeria Zero in Milan, Italy, “Think Warm: Miami Draws for You” at Tomio Koyama Gallery in Tokyo, Japan, “The Possibility of an Island” at the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, “Miami in Transition” at Miami Art Museum, and solo shows at Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris, France, The Fireplace Project, and The Journal Gallery in New York, NY.

in trying to find nice wall shelves for a project, we came across the teebooks shelves; don’t they remind you of Donald Judd art work?

Since we moved our office to a new location (150 West 28th Street, NYC; come an visit us) we had to find new furniture. In researching we found a few options that didn’t make it into our studio but we would certainly use for projects in the future. Like this Marteen swivel chair designed by Victor Carrasco by Viccarbe .

this is an amazing system; we worked on a project for a car lover and jumped through hoops to design an underground multilevel garage – with the Slimparker by Otto Woehr we would have had the perfect solution!

here some facts:

When there is more space in length than in width, the news Slimparker 557 shows off its merits. This slim system merely requires an installation width of 2.60 metres in narrow broad strips between buildings. It has been specially designed for the area between the set-back lines and building. Vehicles can be stacked up to 6 levels deep in front of, and behind the lift. The ground level lid can be furnished with the most varying coverings and can be camouflaged to suit its surroundings.





and here some specifications:

  • for platform loadings of 2000 kg to 2600 kg
  • for various car height and length
  • semi-automatic parking system for up to 23 cars
  • very small floor plan area and very slim construction
  • no space-intensive ramps or driveways
  • below grade arrangement especially designed for the area between the set-back line and building
  • can be driven over when entrance is lowered
  • 2- up to 4- row arrangement behind each other
  • for multi-row arrangement an empty space is required
  • top platform can be covered individually based on customs wishes to suit to the surrounding
