Project description:
The project assumes creation of a platform for interaction between the designer and the user. By giving tools to the user, the designer creates opportunities and sets limits. The furniture is based on furniture frames from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. Stripped of their original finish, they are cleaned, polished and varnished. Seats are made by filling the frames with such materials as all sorts of cords, pipes or belts woven in various ways. Mass-produced furniture changes its face, not only in the visual sense. Mass products undergo REPERSONALIZATION.
