COD Chairs by Rami Tareef for Gaga & Design.
I’ve showed you these chairs before when they where prototypes last year. I still love them, and now they are in production for Gaga & Design.
“Twilling technique conforms the angled structure, creating a closed loop of 3 dimensional matrix. This contemporary take, exploring the technological edges of a well rooted craft culture, while preserving its aesthetical values. Seating is like meeting someone new, yet feeling that you’ve known the person for years.”
December Chair by Jasper Morrison in collaboration with Wataru Kumano for Nikari’s project Design for Nature.
“We talked about the pleasure in making things and the idea of a chair that could be bought in a box and built at home. Considering Nikari’s skill in wood work, we worked up the idea of a chair which could be made by following easy instructions. The core of the design is the seat frame which is already assembled, to which the legs and back rest structure are attached with a combination of screwing and glueing. It’s a basic but comfortable low chair with a slightly rural character and definite scandinavian influence, the kind of chair you would have in a country house near the fire, though it could work in a city apartment or a hotel lobby just as well.”
Room Dividers by OS & OOS.
“Reflection, Distortion, and ‘Color-Bleeding’
Three objects that act as room dividers, playing with large simple sheets of material. For the dividers are worked from the materiality of these materials. Here three specific fascinations on reflection, distortion and color “bleeding” is the goal, careful combinations of material and color interacting with each other with the intention of creating interesting and surprising effects that interact with themselves as well as the space around them. For the reflective surfaces are both vertical and horizontal, and the chosen materials materiality can create impressions of space that don’t physically exist, and therefore plays upon the observer’s perception.
For each panel remains separate yet connected to the others in its form language, for they have the ability to be arranged to adapt to different surroundings in order to achieve it’s purpose of a room divider.
This play on perception is what I am looking for, and the materiality and personal intuition within my visual world is how I will communicate to the user.”
