Tessa Koot; Additions to the Family

Designer's whimsical objects blur lines between design and art...

Dutch designer Tessa Koot showed off this fabulously whimsical family of furniture at Via Tortona’s Tuttobene last week – as part of Salone del Mobile 2012. This is not design made for comfort or practicality – this is design teetering on the very edge of art. Beautiful objects that arouse emotion, works of abstraction that inspire and uplift. Claiming to have a “fascination for the mundane and the fantastical”, there may not be much of the former in Koot’s magical Additions to the Family collection – but there’s literally cargo-ships full of the latter.
