Set No.5 explores and re-interprets the relationship between form and utility, moving away from expected functionality in everyday furniture. The set aims to create new domestic environments, where units are homogenized through physical and visual similarities. Together they build an autonomous setting independent from its context.
Set no.5 consists of three pieces which perform social and domestic activities based around entertainment, including a place to leave your coat, to serve yourself a drink and to gather around. The pieces are fabricated from wood, and finished with automotive metallic paint. The reflective finish gives the set an inherent softness by revealing the overall geometries of the form through the subtle changes in color.
