Tomáš Medek's futuristic sculptures are intriguing, unique, multi-shaped and they look, without exception, as taken from outer space. But what we like most is that Medek manages to create these beautiful pieces of art from heavy-handed materials, like Dupont Corian, metal, wood, stone, iron, aluminum or steel. Dupont Corian, only, is a solid surface material composed of acrylic polymer and alumina trihydrate. Its primary use is in the kitchen countertops and bathroom vanity tops.
Born 1 March 1969, in the Czech Republic, Tomáš is today university assistant at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Technical University of Brno, (Czech Republic) and, until now, has shown in venues from Europe and USA, in solo and group exhibitions. His latest project, Pollen IV, will be exhibited during Milan design week at Jannelli & Volpi showroom, from 14 to 19 April 2010 (source Designeast.Eu).
