Milan-based artist Kris Ruhs has designed shoes, illustrated for Italian Vogue and crafted furniture, but is best known for his long standing partnership with gallerist Carla Sozzini and Milan’s concept store 10 Corso Como. Ruhs’ new exhibition, the eerie Landing on Earth, opens today at the Wapping Project and runs through London Design Festival and Frieze Art Fair, drawing inspiration from aspects of his three studios in Milan, Morocco and Paris. Ruhs tells Crane.tv why his materials always dictate his work, and why he doesn’t feel the need to differentiate between art and design.
