RELATIVE STRUCTURE


URBAN PHILOSOPHY CHAIR BY NISSA KINZHALINA | OPUS 2 BY TIMOTHY K

In concepting the upcoming Wayward design line (exciting news coming soon!), we have been considering what it means to interact with a designed item. Furniture, like clothing, has to be designed to fit and compliment the human body while maintaining its own integrity and agency. A dress can imitate the form of a chair, a fabric color can inspire the use of specific material in a light fixture. How does the framework of physical human comfort constrict and challenge fashion and furniture designers? How do we value the importance of utilitarian function when it comes to fashion and design?

While seeking constant inspiration, we've been investigating the minimalist forms in fashion; their structures and material play. And therefore, we have been approaching material with savvy thought - how to employ design to make silk look tough and steel look soft, etc. etc.

In the production of an unreleased documentary about the influence of fashion on design and vice versa, Charles Miers at Rizolli commented,"There are fashion designers who have significantly influenced interior design, and I think I see more of that direction: fashion to design than design to fashion." Because fashion cycles in an accepted series of trends and phases, it can more easily inspire design with its forever fresh new moves and moments. Furniture and interior design on the other hand, work with a more seriously implied boundary of timelessness. Interiors and furnishings have to withstand trends because of their permanent nature.

We aim to design and build furniture that can keep its beauty through time, but also work within form / function in a way that can inspire designers in different industries.

For this post, we combined minimalist steel furniture with fashion work that when paired together, defines true harmony.
