Tools Galerie: Limber Gems by Pleunie Buyink
Refracting off of natural emulations and geometric cuts, Pleunie Buyink’s flexible Limber Gems soften corners and extend light from all angles.
With fresh spectrums from all angles, Limber Gems by Dutch designer Pleunie Buyink will refract throughout the fair floor at this year’s PAD Paris (31 March – 3 April). Presented by Paris-based Tools Galerie, the ‘interior jewellery’ series employs layers of flexible rubber and resin to emulate crinkled foil or chips in natural stone. Weather the depiction of remote landscapes or eye irides, Limber Gems catch reflections at every turn. This new composite extends light throughout space while softening any hard edge between floor and wall. The rough and random texture plays on sharp geometric forms. Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Buyink customises this new raw material for any colour-range, size, or specification. Formalised in 3D, Limber Gems can also take-on sculptural qualities.
