Aranda/Lasch continues to explore and test out various furniture forms from their latest Railing Series, a series of design pieces that utilize bent tubes and furnished with leather of foam outside. Railing chair (R1 and R2) and railing stool (R3) are the initial prototypes the railing system continues Aranda/Lasch’s research into modularity through a novel language of modular curves.

About Aranda\Lasch

Aranda\Lasch is the nom de guerre of Benjamin Aranda and Christopher Lasch, who founded their design firm in 2003. The duo met in a design studio in Columbia, and both hold degrees in architecture. Though their work spans a variety of scales and functions—including outdoor monuments, indoor installations, video works, furniture, and a set for the band Yeasayer, their work is united by a common motif: a modular, crystalline form. “For us, design is about putting in place a process from which you can guarantee surprises,” Lasch once said, while Aranda notes, “Our understanding of modularity is something that’s not quite obvious or fixed, something that can be a tool for finding infinite variation.”
