Nobu, Doha, Qatar

Ken Gangbar Contact Studio

Ken decided to create an immersive, dynamic installation/ On an 1981 cm x 366cm backdrop behind Doha’s spiral staircase, curved pieces of suspended porcelain seem to float, as if defying the laws of gravity. Some of the pieces are enhanced with geometric patterns of gold, causing bright flashes as they catch the light. The effect is striking, the perfect complement to the visual splendour already on display.

Residence, Palo Alto, USA

Ken Gangbar Contact Studio

After seeing Ken’s work in the lobby of the Palomar Hotel in San Diego, the owner of this home in Palo Alto approached Ken and his team to create a personal installation.
With total creative freedom, Ken looked to nature for inspiration and found it in the soft curves and ephemeral character of wild spores. We began by crafting 350 porcelain orbs. Then, we arranged them in an intentionally random fashion. The cumulative effect of the imperfect, round shapes and their unique placement served to offset the strong geometric lines of the home, creating a fascinating study in contrast. And the client was so pleased with the results she forgave us for knocking holes in her wall.

Four Seasons, Hong Kong

Ken Gangbar Contact Studio

We’ve always found that the circular form meshes fluidly with contemporary design. With that in mind, each porcelain piece was placed with precision and intent along a 60 foot canvas. Ken and his team love to juxtapose modern settings with organic shapes and elements, and the deliberately loose grouping seamlessly achieves this effect. The cumulative effect breaks through any dichotomy, seamlessly insinuating itself into the elegant setting.
