Dean Norton x Spot Studio: Introducing Moodlum Zinc

Maria Ugrinovski
Dean Norton x Spot Studio: Introducing Moodlum Zinc
I had the pleasure of discovering and meeting Dean Norton for the first time at Den Fair 2019,

and I particularly admired his beautiful minimalist aesthetic; his unique sculptural pieces are best described as simple yet elegantly timeless, objects which intimately enhance a space.

In this feature, we explore the young Melbourne-based designer’s latest collection, which he produced remotely during lockdown in collaboration with Barcelona-based digital artists Spot Studio.

Moodlum Zinc explores the mood mirrors, coffee, and side tables; however, in the Moodlum the base of the furniture products and framework of the mirrors are plated in zinc, a performative finish allowing each object to reflect the colours and tones of its surroundings. The stunning pieces provide a delicate alteration in their chromatic form, uniting with and enhancing the space in which they sit.

A standout and striking collection by a remarkable artist, Moodlum epitomises Dean Norton's skill in creating products that consider form, function, refined detailing, and harmony in materials.

Drawing his inspiration from several contemporary influences, Dean strives to create enduring pieces that connect on an emotional level, merging a balance between art and design while maintaining a minimalist design aesthetic.

Casper & Casper magazine looks forward to featuring more of Mr Norton’s exquisite designs - in the meantime, check out more from Dean Norton here or follow @deannorton + @wearespotstudio
