Rough and Ready
Rough & Ready showing at Designersblock 2012 is an experimental furniture morphology inspired by exploring potentials of the imperfect, human, unpredictable and the unfinished “finish” look aesthetics. Drawing from techniques of art, it explores the intuitive material application and mixing mediums as natural patina formations. Tailored cured sheets of wool felt are assembled and tightened into place with rope, forming seating elements. The wool is embedded with rubber providing the surface not only with aesthetical patterns but also structural integrity.
