This new series, COLLECTIBLE In-Depth, unveil the backstage of contemporary creation. Tackling various topics from personal designer processes to the position of collectible design on the global design market; these COLLECTIBLE In-Depth offer different views to suit all tastes. Today we talk with Victoria Maria.
COLLECTIBLE: What is your opinion on 3D designs and renderings compared to other more traditional ways of presenting design? How do you foresee evolutions in that domain: do you think it is a practice that is here to stay or an ephemeral one that reflects our needs for escapism and imaginary spaces?
Victoria Maria: We use it very much in our office. All our residential projects are presented based on extremely precise 3D renders. It has become an essential tool for us, and I think it is the future in my sector. However, there are so many bad renderings that it is important to work with excellent 3D designers.
C: How would you describe the boundary between functional art and collectible design? Where do you situate your practice between those two?
Victoria Maria: I love to think that there is no boundary between them. Why should there be?
C: What have you been up to recently? What are the next projects/exhibitions you wish to highlight?
Victoria Maria: We are currently working on a tableware collection which will be presented in January 2023, in Paris.
C: Can you talk about a designer, whom you admire (designers) / Can you talk about a gallerist, whom you admire?
Victoria Maria: Kelly Wearstler, with her unique approach of shapes.
