A touch of new objectivity
by Fabian Peters | 5/10/2018
Quo vadis, furniture design? This year’s Salone del Mobile reveals a few ideas. An analysis in our glance back at the fair.
With their varying heights and diameters and digitally-produced patterns similar to wood bark, the pieces in this furniture series recall tree stumps. The solid linear metal pieces in the series are a visual play on the ‘wireframes' of 3D software, while the volumes of the soft, smooth fabric-covered ones project a strong sense of surface. By combining these oppositional elements--line and surface, nature and artifice, soft and solid--we hoped to generate objects that exist in an ambiguous space between nature and digital expression.
