Fashion designers go Home
some fashion designers have actually worked on pieces of furniture.
It's interesting to see common points or differences between their interior design and fashion.


Quote:
Here is furniture as canvas. What Ann Demeulemeester, the fashion designer, has done is to take a simple wooden table and stretch canvas around it. The canvas is white. There are nails about every 1-1/2". But, because it is an actual artists' canvas, you can paint any design or color on it you like.

Ann Demeulemeester: "This table has the virginity of a an unpainted canvas. I wanted to return to the essential shape of a table, like a child would draw it."

Why not get your work done whilst lying down, or standing up?
Within the context of "New Ways of Working", not an unusual suggestion by any standard. The boundaries between work and leisure, labour and recreation, work and fun are increasingly fading ...

Bikkembergs take on these changing work situations goes by the name of "MAT": a 2x1 metre gym mat, which can be implemented in a highly flexible and mobile manner in every conceivable type of situation. Its range of applications is not merely limited to just "lying down" alone however.

"MAT" can also be used as a soft floorcover, as a piece of seating furniture, a standing table, as a wall to lean against, or simply as a gym mat ...

I love that table, and I've entertained the idea of having it in my apartment for several years now. I saw it in the Ann Dem boutique in Antwerp. I should've asked if it's actually for sale. I highly doubt that it's for sale anywhere in the US...

This looks REALLY similar to a sofa in the Palau Guell in Barcelona.

The sofa in the Palau Guell was by Antoni Gaudi...which ties in with what was said about branches of design..

The Willhelm Table is available in a limited edition of fifty, signed and numbered, for euro 5000 ($6000). -LC
