Untitled 01 Mirror is a part of DRIFT collection. Fernando Mastrangelo has been using unique casting materials (salt, sugar, sand) as part of his sculpture practice for over a decade. In his new collection MMATERIAL by Fernando Mastrangelo, he re-contextualizes form and function once again, bringing together indoor and outdoor materials that fuse his minimalist aesthetic with deft ingenuity and craft. MMATERIAL strives to fuse sculpture and design in ways that are not found anywhere else in the market.
Fernando Mastrangelo (1978) uses atypically commonplace materials – such as salt, coffee, sand, glass and cement – to cast sculptural objects that inextricably entangle fine art and design disciplines. Mastrangelo enlists an unrelentingly fastidious fabrication process to achieve these liminal harmonies, through which he is able to expand our experience of everyday materials, granting them an otherwise unnoticed cutting-edge, sophisticated minimalism.
