The wall object series New Perspectives offers a new, part functional, part sculptural, opportunity to escape the standard interior design formula.
Nowadays we are able to determine almost every aspect of our lives, such as clothing and food, but our surroundings are generally determined for us. Buildings often appear different on the outside, but on the inside they are essentially all the same. Spaces mostly look like rectangles, one slightly larger or higher than the other. It’s the most efficient building structure, but for the user of such a space it’s often difficult to break through this standardized formula.
By not looking at a space as a fixed framework spaces are able to obtain their own character. The 90° angle is a characteristic element of the rectangular shape language in architecture. By allowing the user to adjust the angle themselves the structural elements become connected to the user and the surrounding furnishings. The newly created corners add dimensions but they also offer a change of perception, a local sense of comfort and protection. Depending on the incidence of light and the users point of view the objects appear to constantly change perspective, transforming the interior into a more dynamic composition. Subtly reflecting their immediate surroundings they’re obedient to the existing while offering new perspectives on the standardized interior.
