Is it possible to give life to an object? That question has been the foundation of my mission to create a stronger relationship with an object. Historically, animal ornamentation in furniture design has been figurative. In this project I have focused on the tactile experience of an object to create a more empathetic, and therefore more sustainable, approach to furniture. The result is a detachable armchair covering, an easy way to alter an existing piece of furniture. The cover is a fabric mix of cotton and polyester. The padding material consists of small cellular plastic balls and plastic granulates.
Vessel of the senses
How can a vessel heighten the emotional experience of food? By changing the traditional way of thinking about the way a vessel ought to be, I want to create stronger emotional use of everyday vessels. I have used the body, water, and flows – that existential state of being – as my points of departure. A plate and a cup become a part of the body – a kind of extension of my hand – and demand physical contact in order to fulfill their rightful function, thereby encouraging a more mobile manner of eating. My second plate uses the flow as a point of departure.
