Using an air brushing gun as a graffiti can, Mirko Borsche painted several glasses like if they would be translucent canvas that float in the room. On a attempt to organize the different spaces generated, we transformed those canvas into furniture pieces by designing 4 different multidirectional items. Each furniture element is recognized depending on the way an item is attached to a glass.
Mechanical mass production has given us the ability to produce vast amounts of objects perfectly but this collection has something that a traditional furniture industry cannot replicate. It addresses the tactile interactions between people and materials. The glass don’t pretend to be perfect, the aluminium doesn’t try to look plain. Both were worked by someone’s hands and this fact is not covered up, instead it’s praised and magnified by showing up its beautiful imperfections.
