diaméter is a creative collective focusing on bespoke visuals combining photography, graphic design and moving image.
To see what is in front of us, to understand what we perceive while looking at pictures, to discover what is individual about this experience, and to invent the ways in which this experience can be made visible to others as well – This is the ars poetica of ‘diaméter’. But what makes the visual approach of three young artists not only new, but also relevant in an international context?
These three young artists from Central Europe take an intermediate position in multiple ways. They not only integrate different European artistic traditions with precision and accuracy in their artwork, but they also endeavor to combine their knowledge and personality in order to make the outcome an exciting and thoughtful visual experience characterized by great care and purity.
The artwork of ‘diaméter’ lies somewhere between photography and graphics. The artists keep the peculiar advantages of both genres, but in their method none of these gets an exclusively dominant position. Throughout the entire process, from elaborating on the idea to its actualization, photography and graphics inspire and strengthen each other. It is the long lasting friendship between the artists – Lucas, Daniel and Fülöp – which makes this intriguing collaborative work possible. Their artwork is not only based on a mutual and deep understanding, but with all of their images they try to make personal points of connection which also serve as a common basis for building the conception. Consequently, the outcome also reflects their personality. The great care with which the artists approached their task is perceptible for viewers as well thus helping them to establish close emotional attachment to the image.
For members of ‘diaméter’ minimalism primarily means filtering out all the disturbing factors, which would hinder the direct understanding of those meanings and thoughts that they conceived in accordance with the customer’s expectations. The way of visual communication thus becomes transparent, straight and efficient. As a result, the thoroughly developed visual experience becomes both unique and easy to identify.
We are excited to announce that filmmaker Barnabas Toth-Justh joined diaméter to work with us on moving image projects.
Thrilled to announce that Felix Pöttinger joined diaméter as brand strategist. He is a multidisciplinary designer with a background in communication design, product design and management.
Designing Craft/ Crafting Design began with a four day workshop held at Werkraum Bregenzerwald, bringing together students from the Royal College of Art, London and craftspeople working in this alpine region. The project explores the collaborative relationship between craftsperson and designer and the shared processes of craft and design. The students at Royal College of Art have been urged to react on their position as designers in an urban context, in relation to and often in contrast with, the practices of their collaborators at Werkraum Bregenzerwald, who work within a regional craft community.
The intersection of these young designers and master craftspeople, and the experiences of the Designing Craft Crafting Design team, are told through a journey–led exhibition. Visitors are prompted to relive experiences shared by the designers and curators in Bregenzerwald, shown through the collaborative outcomes, in three thematic stages. Beginning with pieces inspired by the imposing landscape of Bregenzerwald and the region’s rich material culture, the visitors will then be introduced to works that explore the philosophy behind the makers’ craft. As understanding between the collaborators grew, visitors will witness, how they challenged and reimagines each other’s work through new processes and outcomes.
We loved shooting the portraits of these three lads from Studio Feixen for their new website. Check out the portraits and their amazing work: studiofeixen.ch
