“Blow Up” is art gallery Friedman Benda’s newest exhibition. A human-scale dollhouse with the most fun furniture art thought by PIN UP magazine‘s Felix Burrichter and Charlap Hyman & Herrero. The main question behind this ideas was: Why not idealize a dollhouse adequated for humans?
The project started gaining life during the summer of 2017, it started off as just an idea but later on all of these new ideas, creations and concepts for the house were already on the table.
You can notice that most of this furniture art is painted. From books, windows, pillows, rugs, the fireplace, kitchen, they were all painted and printed on vinyl up to a human scale. Real collectible design or not, everything was thought of in order to create a house that is fun, has a contemporary design concept, and stands out from what is already known as a typical dollhouse.
Both creators of this concept thought that by introducing real furniture art into those made up/painted scenarios made the whole thing a different experience on a whole another level.

For this art exhibition, they never tried to go “too crazy”, meaning that in a dollhouse nothing is too extreme. A chair looks like a chair, it has an area to sit on and four legs. And that was their mindset for the entire house. There is a bedroom, a kitchen, a nursery, dining, and living area, there is no weirdness in that.
It’s when you look closer that the whole artistic aspect is noticeable and you can see art flowing through the entire room. I Lobo You highly suggests that you check this out at Friedman Benda, New York until the 14 of February!
