Pile – a hosting area / stackable furniture

Pile – a hosting area
Pile – a hosting area

Stacking, as an intuitive action in our daily life, creates the main focus of the work. Stacking means to reorder elements from horizontal to a vertical and compact composition – creating a sculptural object. This ordinary but effective technique led to the essence of the work: transforming furniture, with the gesture of opening up to reveal a space to meet and host.

Height: 1400 mm, unstacked dimensions vary due to arrangements of the carpet pieces.
Each carpet piece measures: 500 x 500 mm
