Sculptural furniture that invites human interaction. The user is encouraged to use the furniture as they wish and is involved in creating the end result; Allow the body and objects to interact.
By using the body as inspiration and tool, I have created sculptural furniture that encourages interaction. Allowing the body to take its place and act as it pleases has been my starting point. That's why I've made furniture that allows the user to feel and take their place. My result is not only about the furniture itself, but also the movement of body and object between, which I present through a kind of performance where body and objects interact.
In my process, I have questioned what a piece of furniture is and how we use them, therefore my three furniture has no assumed way to use them. The undulating steel pipes do not associate with the furniture we are used to seeing. Even though my furniture's main function is to support the body in different ways, my focus has been on the feelings they arouse.
