Highlighting the disconnect between owner and product, Sovrappensiero Design Studio have created Furnature; a project they tell us addresses the problem that ‘products are ours only because we purchased them’.
Aesthetically anonymous, the buyer can ‘complete the piece by adding natural elements found in a specific location and chosen according to his own tastes, needs and links with the territory’. It’s kind of Ikea meets Glastonbury’s Healing Field.
Hanger presents a steel frame that can be transformed by sticks and stones; a Side Table embellished by stone; Domestic Landscape is a marble and wood vice-turned-objet d’art, ready for whichever element of nature takes your fancy; a Towel Rack and Hourglass complete the artful collection.
Furnature, which hopes to transform mass-produced pieces into one-off products, is set to be exhibited at LA DODO gallery throughout Milan Design Week.
