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.
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.
As part of the Nike and Pigalle Spring-Summer 2017 collaboration, Ill-Studio conceived and designed original modules used for various installations. The designs establish a parallel between antique architecture and modernist Italian designers such as Carlo Scarpa, Gio Ponti and Aldo Rossi.
To complement the Untold Eivissa exhibition, conceived and curated as a partnership between Ill-Studio and 2ManyDjs, a limited edition flexi disc & poster series was produced for the occasion.
The disc features an interview with Faruk Gandji, discussing the early days of Balearic Club Culture between 1981 and 1987
