A musical ping pong table and a vinyl like a sausage: These are the work of the Swedish artist David Rinman
Ikea is not the only Swedish designer! As a proof, Davis Rinman, a young Swedish artist, around 20 years old and freshly graduated from the Design and Advertising School of Forsbergs (Stockholm) brings a new touch to the landscape of the contemporary art.
So I wanted to introduce you to his work and more particularly to two of his pieces of art. The first one is interactive: “Match Beat”, while the second one is more contemplative: “Cutting Records”. In both cases, the artist offers us a conceptual work around the musical world and it’s proven to be a unique experience.
The first piece flirts with the sport, moving resolutely towards interactivity. David Rinman has designed a musical and luminous ping pong table. Created as part of his graduation certificate, the Match Beat project addresses the notions of exchange, rhythm and music.
As the exchange goes, the ball generates sounds and lights. Faster is the game, faster the music rhythm varies and more abstract are the patterns. A perfect item to bring a colorful touch to your home or create the sensation when camping.

The second piece tends towards the art and its aesthetic is halfway between typically French and modern. This time, the artist seems to share a special relationship with the old wax. He simply tied up the records into a delicacy. Finely chopped with a knife, vinyl slices are presented to the audience.
