THE MAGIC OF LUCY AND BART at dazed digital

The Lucy and Bart collective are made up of British Lucy McRae and Dutch Bart Hess who met at Philips Design, working in a far future design research programme. They describe their work as an instinctual stalking of fashion, architecture, performance and the body. Translated to physical pieces, the duo use unexpected materials like foam, shards of wood and even balloons to create mindblowing ensembles that do much to distort the body. This duo have a lot to say as we found out when we spoke to them and they are not done just yet as they are curating a show for Milan Furniture Fair with the Maastricht Arts School as well as live shows. We're waiting with baited breath to see what will these two think to put on a human body next.
