During the last edition of the Stockholm Furniture Fair, which took place from February 5 to 9, 2013, Beckmans College of Design presented the project called “is this it” which is a reflection of thirteen students around a creation.
The guiding thread: the visual expression of the object must become the illusion of their content.
This subject, not easy to put in place, has given way to original and playful creations.
I let you discover the creations of some of these talented students:
A desk by Fredrik Andersson
Fredrik Andersson used discarded materials to create something beautiful and functional. To build this office, he used skateboards that have reached the end of their life cycle. By treating the wood and adjusting it, it has given new life to an ancient material.
A cupboard by Kristina Behrens
The designer is based on the fact that memories are our own making, that our spirit is their home. She insists that the memories are different each time and that our vision of the object will therefore be different.
A sideboard / cupboard by Hanna Dalrot
The designer is inspired by the shapes of the forest. It pays homage to the roots that are the foundations of nature and life.
[stu: l] “A stool” (stool) by Andreas Frienhol
The idea is that noise can affect the shape of objects. This stool was created to move from fantasy to reality using computer animation and rapid prototyping.
“Lenticular Cabinet” (Wardrobe) by Amanda Karsberg
Inspired by dance performances and transformations of the human body, the designer wanted to create a piece of furniture that affects the mood of the viewer in different ways. It is part of a material that reminds him of cheap toys, and saw the possibility of creating a moving surface in a piece of furniture, inspired by the alchemical process of transforming a basic material into something refined.
“The Raisparadise Style *” by Lotta Lampa (a lounge chair and a lamp)
A grotesque summary of imaginary worlds, bizarre proportions and a sense of touch are some of the inspirations that have spawned this jumble of odds and ends, like fluorescent lights and sponge painting. The artist then added a little imagination and mysticism in an artistic way to highlight these visually strong metallic objects, the Raisparadise style.
“Nate” by Lisa Berkert Wallard (wardrobe)
“Like the idea of reincarnation, the creative process is a journey where ideas take different forms. It’s the story of how our creations come to life and how they affect and are influenced by their environment. ”
