Robot Sculptures by Hervé Stadelmann

The MB&F M.A.D.Gallery (M.A.D = Mechanical Art Devices) “for kinetic art where Horological Machines and Mechanical Art Devices reign supreme.” introduces Robotyp; High-End, handmade robot sculptures by tinsmith and artist Hervé Stadelmann. MB&F (Maximilian Büsser & Friends) is an artistic concept laboratory based around a simple idea: to assemble collectives of independent watchmaking professionals to develop radical horological masterpieces.

Stadelmann has crafted an army of 16 individually numbered robot sculptures for the M.A.D.Gallery; the appearance of each varies greatly from one to the other, and unmistakable personalities are easily discerned. Exuding a distinctive origami vibe thanks to the multitude of bends and folds demonstrating his metallurgic expertise as well as a talent and a passion for design, the Robotyps’ intricate compositions proudly display their repurposed origins, whether these come from what may appear to be a patriotic Pepsi service tray or the tin of an exotic batch of Asian teas.

Sixteen robots are available at the M.A.D.Gallery webshop  (read more madgallery.net)
