"Sometimes people try too hard to think of something new, but often the idea is hiding in plain sight"
Simon Andrews - International Specialist, Christie's. Discussing the work of David Bielander at Design Miami/ Basel.
In his Cardboard series, Bielander hides nobility in plain sight, laboriously fabricated by hand, a wearable piece with substantial material value disguised as the creation of a child playing with scissors and stapler. One may not recognize that they are looking at something precious, until it is held in the hand and the substantial material weight is experienced.
