WOKmedia * Made in China – GRR

Made in China GRR – Limited Edition
Limited edition series of our ‘Made in China collection. Each piece is unique, featuring traditional Chinese furniture embedded with hand-carved wooden toys and finished in white lacquer.

Julie Mathias and Wolfgang Kaeppner established WOKmedia in 2004. They are based in London with a production studio in Shanghai.
Wokmedia’s work is primarily concerned with the emotional dimension, an archetypal memory or a physical sensation. Often they survey a state of in between where chaos is showing structure and confusion is beginning to make sense. Where out of devastation and destruction emerges a new world. A world imbedded in their childhood memories when emotions were not expected to be filtered, when make-believe was not equated with lunacy.
WOKmedia’s work has been shown in national and international group shows and solo installations including the Design Museum London; the British Council’s lighting exhibition Twinkle, twinkle in Tokyo, Moscow and Istanbul; Great Brits: the New Alchemists, the second collaboration between the Design Museum, the British Council and Paul Smith for the Milan Furniture Fair in 2005; “Well Done” in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Taipei; “My World” Part of the Lisbon Biennale “Experimenta”. Other work has been exhibited in Sheffield, Singapore, Amsterdam, Sydney and Melbourne, Vilnius, Oslo, Ljubljana, Miami, Athens and Shanghai.
