Soft Baroque

SOFT BAROQUE consists of Royal College of Art graduates, Saša Štucin and Nicholas Gardner. Their London-based practice focuses on creating work with conflicting functions and imagery, without abandoning beauty or consumer logic. They explore how thoroughly digital representations have begun to supersede physical objects, and how much design, as a result, has become about creating a spectacle rather than enabling a specific function. Soft Baroque is keen to blur the boundaries between acceptable furniture typologies and conceptual representative objects.

Soft Baroque has shown work at the Victoria & Albert Museum, Christie’s, Aram Gallery and 19 Greek Street in London, Swiss Institute in New York, A Palazzo Gallery in Brescia, Design Miami/Basel (Basel), and Collective Design (NYC) fairs as well as held exhibitions in cities such as Milan, London, New York, Stockholm and Dubai for Design Week.
