РLAYABLE ERGONOMIC FURNITURE
integration of design, style, innovations and ecology
This furniture seeks to explore the intricate subtleties and varieties of the skin surface and the volumes of the flesh. The volumes speak to an owner but we can not locate the body parts nor name the elements. The stools are designed to provoke and surprise – their mottled colouring appears as hard as marble yet they can gently cradle a baby. It is this element of play that allows for a connection to be made between the object and the user. Silicone is used as the base element in the work, as its visceral quality is instantly evocative of skin. Moulded leather provides a potential familiarity and thus a more subtle visual impact. However, it is
literally a piece of skin, removed from a body, a direct translation rather than a representation of the material.
