IF THIS IS NOW, I AM HERE
‘IF THIS IS NOW, I AM HERE’ was presented at the Salone di Mobile.
A collection of design concepts for the home and workplace, pieces designed to provide an intermission in space and time.
The ‘Escapement Rocker’ uses the principle of a pendulum clock, or escapement mechanism, whereby a hanging weight drives a gearwheel that swings a pendulum. In a clock, this pendulum helps ensure that the clockwork runs smoothly and precisely. In the ‘Escapement Rocker’, it drives a swinging seat that allows us to lay down, forget about the time and drift off into thought and reflection.
‘Shade for Shelter’ and ‘Assembly seats’ are interior design products with an architectonic effect on their environment, they define a space.
The lamp and the bench create a sense of shelter and intimacy, a place to consult, meet, concentrate or relax. The use of both striplight and halogen in the lampshade allows the user to create various lighting moods in aid of specific applications. The bench consists of a modular system of straight and curved seats and removable legs.
The use of materials combines traditional with hi-tech. Luxury woods Walnut and Ash are moulded into a varied pattern using epoxy resin. These elements can be combined in various ways, allowing for a wealth of applications and the creation of new spaces.
