THE BACK STUDIO; PREDATOR MOSAIC SCAFFOLD CHAIR, 2024

The Back Studio, a dynamic collaboration between Eugenio Rossi and Yaazd Contractor, was established in 2020. Drawing from their experiences in Turin, Italy and Mumbai, India respectively, as well as their shared journeys at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the duo’s portfolio is purposefully eclectic. Industrial construction pieces interact with hand-blown neon creations, resulting in a repertoire of assemblages that are simultaneously sculptural and functional. Heavily influenced by the ubiquity of architecture – a discipline that invariably moulds and informs the interactions of our daily lives – they believe in harnessing the highly tactile yet stubborn materiality of architectural forms in their projects. Apart from revealing the inconspicuous and often completely invisible elements of architectural processes in a novel context, The Back Studio’s creations are a commentary on duality; where the near-obsolete skill of cold cathode glass working and the rapidly evolving environment of digitized mass-fabrication are adroitly juxtaposed.
