In 2014, Ill-Studio produced this sculpture showcasing the wheel of a Yamaha BWs 50 (arguably one of the most popular icon of 90's teenage culture) covered with gold foil. BWs stands as an allegory to cultural artifacts from past civilisations.
In September 2015, Ill-Studio led a week-long workshop with ECAL students along with a conference and video screening in the ECAL Theatre.
The brief for the workshop was to create a visual dialogue with a selection of student original works and the “sources” connected to the work itself, in order to highlight the cultural environment and the different types of inspirations which compliment the creation of an image, a typeface, or an object.
The collective source cloud initiated a self-reflexive dialogue and an encyclopedia of influences in which the original works and their references blended together, no matter whether they were classic or contemporary, direct or abstract. As a result, a publication and an exhibition were developed by the students in a collaborative effort in order to extrude the concept via an array of art directed media.
Apartamento magazine and German furniture brand New Tendency invited Ill-Studio along with Mike Meiré and Nathalie du Pasquier to rethink the brand’s signature shelving system. Ill-Studio’s design combines various raw and blank metallic surfaces as an allegory to generic industrial furniture usually found in scientific facilities as opposed to a living room.
Video Home System is an installation made by Ill-Studio in 2012.
A subjective selection of VHS tapes, symbolizing Ill-Studio's personal golden era of skateboarding, are stacked together in an unstable balance display. The piece was published in the book Neapolis and exhibited during the Public Domaine Exhibition at la Gaité Lyrique in Paris.
Following projects with the likes of Martin Margiela and Karl Lagerfeld, Les Ateliers Ruby collaborated with Ill-Studio on a series of four high-end helmets. The bespoke pattern specifically created for the range echoes the works of ornamentation from late 1970s post-modernist designers and architects such as Shiro Kuramata or Robert Venturi.
