Made in Ruins is a one-of-a-kind piece created by Benandsebastian between 2009 and 2011. It is a staircase fragment constructed from various wood materials using marquetry techniques.


According to the artists: “The misfit will not be pinned down. The oversized dimensions and shifting scales of the staircase fragment refuse an easy and predictable relationship with your legs. Beneath the works’ surfaces lie architectural worlds, suggesting an ambiguity of scale and a vulnerable relationship between the work’s outer surfaces and the fragile inner constructions that support them.”


Benandsebastian is a collaboration between Ben Clement (born in Oxford) and Sebastian de la Cour (born in Copenhagen), both trained as architects at the Bartlett University College London. Together they create hybrid work using the language of architecture as a means of addressing the relationship between the psychological spaces of the mind and the physical spaces of the body. 

Their work has been exhibited in a variety of museums and galleries in Europe and Asia and can be found in the permanent collections of the Kanazawa Museum in Japan, Trapholt Museum in Denmark, and Shanghai Museum of Glass.
