Beautiful ugly

29th April 2011

A recurring theme throughout Milan Design week, designers are pushing the boundaries of what we perceive as beautiful.

Daniel Azoulay's Beautiful ugliness questions aesthetic values by integrating dirty materials into decorative objects. Working with tar, glass and hair it evokes an interesting reaction.

Looking at the beauty to be found in mildew and mould, students from The Swedish School of textiles play with colour, texture and form. Also under the umbrella of (un Beautiful), the 'Stained by expectation' project contextualises stains in the hopes of making them beautiful.

Showing at Spazio Rossana Orlandi, Infested glass explores decay and beauty at the same time offering a balance of attraction and repulsion.
