About the Artist
THE INSPIRATION: The increasing speed of our lives, the constant upheaval and pressure to perform, makes many of us wish more and more for the chance to slow down and experience a little calm. Changing professional and recreational spheres require new possibilities and new rituals to help balance body and mind. In the midst of our high-performance society we humans are developing an archaic yearning for »deceleration«.
THE CONCEPT: The artist, designer and perception researcher sha. has found a solution to this growing need for balance in WOLKE 7 CLOUD 9. As an alternative to the »faster-higher-stronger« trend sha. offers something more authentic, something designed for the human senses - something deeper. The mental/physical effect stems from a special combination of interior elements, centered on a relaxation landscape in the form of a cloud. WOLKE 7 CLOUD 9 is a holistic space-art-work, delivered and installed on location as a complete spatial solution. The swinging relaxation sculpture, the skylike roof, the cloud of sound, the spectral illumination and the spatial decor (soft floor covering and 3-D wall coating) all work together to create a composed, multisensory interior unity.
THE EFFECT: WOLKE 7 CLOUD 9 creates a broad spectrum of effects, ranging from a sensation of weightlessness to embryonic feelings and inspiring flights of imagination. Even a beginner can reach a condition of deep relaxation in a short time, reenergizing body and soul.
THE CONTEXT: With the motto »The true luxury of today is time and space in abundance«, sha. offers an alternative to the materially oriented definition of the word luxury. WOLKE 7 CLOUD 9 is available as a limited interior edition, restricted to 111 locations around the world. Each installation is unique and hand-signed by sha., guaranteeing the very highest quality at carefully selected locations and sustained value appreciation.
