Floral Hanging Mobile for MoMA Design Store

In Spring 2024, Dusen Dusen designed a mobile for MoMA Design Store andin collaboration with the Denmark-based Flensted, a family business who has been making mobiles since 1954. Our studio in Brooklyn has several Flensted mobiles hanging above the desks, making Ellen Van Dusen's final design a labor of love and result from years of passion. The Floral Hanging Mobile is an adaptation on Flensted’s Symphony in Three Movements. The exclusive design is an eye-catching, one-of-a-kind addition to any room in your home. 

The Dusen Dusen Floral Hanging Mobile is made from polypropylene leaves and petals in green, red, yellow and black colors. It can be purchased here

Dragon Curve
Dragon Curve Dragon Curve Dragon Curve Dragon Curve Dragon Curve Dragon Curve

Dragon Curve

Dragon Curve is an installation of objects, wall pieces and home goods that explores a specific pattern, "Arc," in various iterations and through different widths, colors, and media. The pattern is created by connecting multiple rotations of a simple shape – an arc – at a 90° angle, and is inspired by an infinite fractal pattern first described by NASA physicist John Heighway in the 1960s known as the “Dragon Curve.” The resulting curve is continuous and infinite; it never crosses itself and does not meet at the ends. In her work, Ellen often utilizes mathematical rules to create patterns, isolating one or two factors in order to produce a complex image.

 

The exhibition features collaborations with Bower Studios and Brendan Timmins. With a focus on mirrors, Bower explores perceptions of depth, light and self, and aims to bring unexpected objects and environments into people's lives. The triptych mirror, designed in collaboration with Bower, merges Van Dusen's playful patterns with Bower's innovative take on mirrors. The upholstered chairs, made in collaboration with Timmins, signal a new use and direction for the “Arc” print. Timmins, a designer of semi-functional aestheticized objects, is inspired by hidden processes, material experimentation and the prototype as a unique and self-contained form.

Hilarity and true camaraderie between the host and Vicky ensue.

In 2016, Microsoft invited Ellen Van Dusen to participate in the Surface Experiments project, a series of collaborations with various creatives exploring a project of their own choosing using the Microsoft Surface. The result is a three-part project designed and built on the Surface Pro 4 by siblings Ellen and Henry Van Dusen. ABC RYB is a book of ten color-separated patterns in vinyl and a series of multi-layer compositions in acrylic, as well as a website that explores these patterns in a digital context. Each of the components is a study in transparency, layers, and the additive and subtractive values of color. Read more about the project here.

In 2015, Ellen and Snips temporarily bid Brooklyn farewell for San Francisco to participate in an artist-in-residence program at Workshop Residence. The program—which invites artists and designers to create products using resources from the Bay Area—allowed Ellen to work extensively with plexiglass and resin, materials outside of the normal Dusen Dusen wheelhouse. During her 6 week long stay at Workshop Residence, Ellen explored a single print through various mediums, resulting in a diverse set of objects: a small apparel capsule sewn from digitally printed fabric, a table and checkers set made of laser cut plexiglass and clear resin, and screen printed vinyl placemats that create a new, layered pattern when stacked.

The sunset hued gradient-on-gradient installation debuted at WantedDesign NYC in May 2015 and was designed in collaboration with Henry Van Dusen. The mural features our Cutouts print, which began with and was inspired by actual paper cutouts. The resulting composition, as seen above, did not last long in its original state as visitors were encouraged to move and play with the shapes to create their own.
