CHAMBER is pleased to announce that their second annual collection, “Human | Nature,” will be curated by celebrated photographer and filmmaker Andrew Zuckerman, who will work closely with Chamber’s founder, Juan Garcia Mosqueda, in shaping the year-long project.
In curating Chamber Collection #2, Andrew Zuckerman will explore the theme of how the natural world interacts with man’s living environment as expressed through objects of design, art, and various types of ephemera. Zuckerman’s collaboration with Chamber will draw on a broad array of sources, including Japanese aesthetics, ethnographic art, and biomimetics, in the service of creating a collection of objects that reintroduce organic forms or concepts into designed spaces.
The new collection explores how nature interacts with the built environment and investigates how objects have a transformative effect on our lives. Consisting of customized contemporary design pieces, specially commissioned unique editions, and historic objects, the collection will evolve throughout the year as a living, ever-changing presentation of rare and unusual artifacts.
“As an artist I’ve been deeply invested in an exploration of the natural world. So when I was approached about assembling Collection #2 for Chamber it felt right to delve into the conversation between design and nature, and its function in our living spaces. The show encompasses a collection of objects that reflect a meeting point between man and the environment.”
