Apical Reform for MB&F

A blank canvas for innovation in interiors, product design and creative arts, AR Gallery moves beyond tradition roles of a gallery to provide infrastructural assistance to creative product brands and designers - established and emerging, regional and international, with the ultimate aim of pushing the limits of the creative industries.

Conceived by Amrish Patel, founder of the progressive design studio Apical Reform, AR Gallery’s vision is backed by industry knowledge, high-tech production capabilities and an intention to build bridges between talent, opportunity and audience.

STINGRAY II

Apical Reform has collaborated with MB&F M.A.D.Gallery to create a kinetic art sculpture that is inspired by the ethos of mechanical art and pays tribute to the pioneering spirit of the MB&F M.A.D.Gallery. The limited edition mechanical art piece entitled “Stingray II” embodies the aesthetics of using mechanical motion and movement, to convey artistic expression.

“Stingray II” completes the synergy between art, mathematics, mechanics and electronics. Seeking its inspiration from the mighty stingray, this abstract kinetic sculpture pays reverence to the majesty of nature and captures the beauty and trance-like movement of the stingray in slow motion. Slowly accenting each gesture and movement, the on-looker is left mesmerized by the hypnotic and trance-like movement of the stingray, while its reflective finish creates a memorable aesthetic. Stingray II is available in 8 limited edition pieces (and 2 artist proofs) in stainless steel with a mirror finish.

KINETIC DESIGN THAT MOVES YOU

“The MB&F M.A.D. Gallery prides itself on being a haven for kinetic art and offering a captivating universe where mechanical masterpieces reign supreme. We are very pleased to welcome Apical Reform into our world and excited to showcase their Stingray II moving sculpture, which seamlessly fuses technical expertise with artistic flair,” said Maximilian Büsser, Founder and Curator of MB&F M.A.D.Gallery.

“Since childhood I have been fascinated by moving objects, and that fascination grew into an appreciation of horology and kinetic design. MB&F M.A.D.Gallery is a pioneering gallery within the kinetic world and we are thrilled to be working with them. I have admired them from afar and to get an insight into the mastery of their futuristic art works, that are still deeply rooted in traditional craftsmanship, is both eye-opening and a childhood dream come true,” said Amrish Patel, Founder and Principal, Apical Reform.
