Industry is pleased to announce its participation in the 5th edition of the Gwangju Design Biennale in Gwangju, Korea, the first design biennale in Asia and one of the most important design biennale’s in the world.
The title of the 5th Gwangju Design Biennale is “Anything, Something” and includes a special exhibition, titled “The Artistic Furniture,” curated by internationally-known art and design consultant Christina H. Kang, founder of Paradigm Art Company. For this special exhibition, Ms. Kang has partnered with Craig Appelbaum, owner of Industry Gallery.
Their curatorial collaboration will present works by many of the leading international designers working today and will also inform the current debate on how design may claim its rightful place as a true art form. Works by gallery designers Mathias Bengtsson, Remy & Veenhuizen, Tom Price, Jens Praet, Elena Manferdini, and Benjamin Rollins Caldwell will all be on view.
The exhibition will focus on and emphasize each individual designer and their unique body of work. The exhibit will also explore how the traditional categories of “art,” “design” and “craft” can be redefined to provide a broader perspective on what is “NOWNESS” in the contemporary societies in which we live.

Industry will exhibit for the first time during Berlin Art Week in a special exhibition exploring the use of recycled materials as medium for challenging our ideas on common, every day materials as a basis for contemporary design.
In collaboration with Gallery Livius Haerer, Industry designers Remy & Veenhuizen, Benjamin Rollins Caldwell, Jens Praet and Johannes Hemann will each present unique works that will address the theme of reuse, recycling and repurposing. Using such disparate elements as shredded paper, recycled computer parts, glass and beech wood, the designers have each produced works intended to reevaluate how the common and ordinary can be turned into functional works of art.
