This is Tom Wu’s final project at Central Saint Martins. He was very interested in how clothes and furniture are trending each other. This project is questioning the culture of clothes and the culture of furniture.
Within the frame of mass and historical use, Denim becomes a kind of universal fabric for clothing and wood is a universal material for furniture.Moreover, these two things are heavily exploited internationally and through this global reach both have few culture barriers to understanding. This project seeks to combine there heritages, typologies and material cultures to see how their challenge each other. The results unexpectedly challenge the broader relevance of clothing and furniture vocabulary and start to draw in wider issues.
In an internationalized world, a furnished world and a worn world we really need some new thinking to challenge the whole consumption process. This project is denim furniture. It is about the culture of furniture and the culture of clothes and synthesising the boundaries of these internationalized?fast changing cultures.
