The Design Museum in Kensington, London acquired Suple Connecting Form: Manufactured Landscapes Bench by gt2P (Great Things to People). The work is currently installed in the Design Museum’s gardens to be used by visitors.
“It is named for a Chilean slang word, suple — an element that connects — and through its materiality references mass production (stainless steel), mass customization (bronze), and nature (Chilean volcanic rock). It was installed on our 10th anniversary. It was our first international public, permanent installation…” — gt2P cofounders Tamara Pérez, Victor Imperiale, Sebastián Rozas, and Guillermo Parada.
