Typecasting

Info

Back

Commissioned by Vitra for Salone del Mobile 2018, Typecasting is a project led by Viennese-born curator and designer Robert Stadler. A digital cast performs a range of communal movements. With grace and physical control, some stretch into bikram yoga positions, others contort their bodies into the ebullient arabesques of the Cheerleader.

Their translucent skins shimmer with digital feeds, resonating light and movement. They dance together and they dance alone. Furniture provides the surface, the support and the inspiration to perform. Design responds to human movement and humans insinuate themselves on the inanimate. This is a dance to the spirit of design.
