Just like natural terrain is, furniture brings ups and downs in space and guides our regular behavior and daily scenery as geographical features of living.
If there is a new terrain in living, it will be a new possibility for ways of editing space.
In the collection “Geography,” we propose the works which provide new geographical characteristics into space, understanding the relationship between furniture and surrounding with look of like a geographer who has an eye to both nature and living in each place.
We live in a world of countless tangled things, many of them share a line or surface with each other while there are boundaries separating them and giving them their distinctive shapes.
By creating these boundaries between things is how we try to acquire knowledge about the world. Thus, whether they are real or virtual lines made by our imagination, It is somehow these boundaries that are constructing the outlines of the world we know.
But what are these boundaries? What is happening there and what can be created there? The boundary lines have width and if looked at closely, these boundary surfaces have thickness and inside these spaces between different objects, something must be happening.
We try to look inside these boundaries and create furniture and interior elements inspired by what is happening there.
We seem to enjoy being free, yet live with many limits in reality.
But Life would be richer if we could remove those limits, would it not?
Yet, being free is something that can only be appreciated in contrast with being limited.
As giving even a little freedom to whom he was always living in limitations, will make him feel happy.
This time, we thought about being “Free”. We chose objects, actions, and feelings which could symbolize it, set keywords, and created our products based on those ideas and keywords. The collection “Taxonomy of Free“ is born from what each of us has captured wandering around the theme “Free”.
