‘Objects of Use’ is the result of two worlds meeting. Two professions intertwining. Two people crossing, clashing and correlating.
‘Objects of Use’ is the fusion of the mind of an architect and hand of a designer, the hand of an architect and the mind of a designer.
It is a borderland, a hybrid. A place to ask what constitutes architecture and what justifies the label of design. A time to explore relations between and differences in space, function and action.
‘Objects of Use’ is an immediate meeting and a process. It is thinking as well as creating.
The common ground is an intuitive approach, a technical knowledge and a professional craftsmanship.
The result is what you see.
What is furniture?
Furniture has a scale, a construction, a use, a detail, a materiality.
Have a seat or don’t have a seat.
This is a series. Everything evolved from the stool.
They are the same. They are not the same.
Few things will change the suggestion of use.
Details will indicate or deprive function or action.
Space and use
These are objects.
The objects are furniture, a room, a sculpture, a scenography, a relation, a space.
They are everything in-between.
What are they to you?
When you put them together in a new constellation, you create new objects of use.
It might be a room. It might not be.
It is a piece of objects. It is a piece of work.
Now there are people in the space.
Now time has changed.
Now you moved an object.
Now you used an object.
Now you created objects of use.
Now you created objects of no use.
