The Co-Existe series is a collaborative project realised with Six N. Five design studio, photographer Cody Cobb and spatial designer Ben Willett. The project was fuelled by a shared love of finding tranquil moments in an otherwise chaotic world. Each image carries a consistent design – a serene and polished visual language that envelopes and calms the viewer. One-of-a-kind sculptures nestle into their distinct environments, which complement each other in form, colour and material. Rust-orange shapes stand out against bright white cliffs. Pink sunsets reflect off smooth silver metal. Iridescent white light bulbs pop against the shadows of rock formations. These images settle the mind through magnetising simplicity, drawing onlookers into glossy lakes and pearly skylines. Six N. Five – directed by Ezequiel Pini (b. 1985) – specialises in still life visuals and videos with a clean and modern aesthetic. sixnfive.com.
