East London-based artist Lorenzo Vitturi stuns the audience with his collection of impeccably colorful and abstract upcycled sculptures. The exhibition is running during London Design Festival and the presentation offers a systematic reassembly of product and furniture lines by Established & Sons. The artist breaks the pre-set boundaries of the home pieces, deconstructing them and presenting them as absolutely unrecognizable disjointed installations.

The upcycled sculptures have a strong presence in the room by way of their boldly colorful appearance and their surreal structural reconfiguration. With this exhibition, Lorenzo Vitturi sought out to challenge the idea of functionality and purpose. Through manipulating the relationship between materials within the framework of the furniture piece, the artist is able to rewrite narratives through upcycled sculptures.
