UNIQUE PIECE – As a child I used to push my bed into the middle of the room, I would jump on it and start to navigate. At that point nobody could reach me because all around me there was the sea. The objects I designed for Inhabituel, almost like that bed of mine as a child, are not thought to answer a need, but actually to affirm his existence through a theatrical gesture.
These objects are an instrument to express a state of being, to identify, support and amplify it, each object presents a double interpretation, revealed by flipping them upside down, offering the possibility to understand different and paradoxical conditions.
