Things Modenus loves: Stanley Ruiz – New Organics

Stanley Ruiz is a trans-disciplinary designer and artist based in Brooklyn, New York. I had heard of him before but will admit I never researched his work until a few weeks ago, when his Twitter account was hacked and I received a message that had clearly not been sent by him. A hacked Twitter account is annoying but in this case it drew my attention to Stanley and his amazing design work, so Mr. Hacker, whoever you are, you actually did some good for once, don’t you just hate that? Now back to Stanley’s work which is a juxtaposition of warm organic materials against cold steel, nature against man. The bowl above is from the New Organic collection and reflects the machined element in  steel combined with carefully hand selected twigs “like a nomad with rudimentary tools fashioned his wares”.

Similar to the New Organics concept is the Growth Series with ceramic vases combined with Manzanita twigs. I absolutely love the sculptural quality and shadow play of these pieces.

“Atavistic” is a desk lamp made of felt, leather, steel and energy friendly LED; I love the simplicity of design paired with the complex material choices.

The speakers above are “Symbiosis” which Stanley Ruiz had designed for SOUND LIKE a curated exhibit by Joey Roth which opened at ICFF in 2010. You can see the whole process of how the speakers are made at Designboom.
