Following their manifestation ‘Stilled Life’ in 2019, Rive Roshan returned to Dutch Design Week 2022 with Ordinary Miracles, an immersive exhibition that plays with perception, perspective and reflection. Held at LOADS 040 in Eindhoven, the artistic studio presented both sculptural objects and a new collection with Moooi Carpets.

The title ‘Ordinary Miracles’ refers to the marvel of natural phenomena many of us have learned to take for granted, yet hold so much magical complexity and visual depth. Ruben de la Rive Box and Golnar Roshan of Rive Roshan share with us their visual fascination with something as small as a raindrop on a window, which reflects light like a lens and changes slowly. “Our inspiration is not nature itself, but how nature affects us. A raindrop that drips very elegantly past a window carrying an entire scene within it, we want to capture that moment of stillness,” elaborate Ruben and Golnar.

The new Colour Dial Carpets collection for Moooi Carpets form fields of colour in the large and high furniture warehouse. Inspired by the transparent glass of the Colour Dial Table that acts as an abstract sundial, the carpets with geometric compositions of circle, oval and square shapes have a similar layered expression. Each carpet is an artwork composed of layered spray-paint textures and transitioning colours.

A series of reflective objects capture the surrounding environment. There are moments of surprise in the constant transformation of the objects like a chameleon: the six sculptural panels, the glass of the table, the circle of polished steel that rotates in mid-air; revealing the beauty of the projection and reflection of light, of geometric shadows and creating an infinite space within the space.

According to Golnar and Ruben, the idea behind the Ordinary Miracles manifestation is that we start to look more consciously and thoughtfully at our environment and act with more attention and care. “We feel our role as artists and designers is to offer people a new and inspiring narrative to build a progressive future,” they explain.

Rive Roshan is an Amsterdam-based artistic practice creating collectible objects and immersive installations that shift perspectives and capture transience. In their projects, Ruben and Golnar translate a shared visual wonder into abstracted material manifestations. Through exploring the interplay of light, colour, space and material, Rive Roshan aims to create sensorial wonder and invoke curiosity towards the hidden magic that surrounds us.
