100% Design  Furniture  Art 

[#pageName]

Is it furniture or is it art? Recently showcased at the 100% Design exhibition in London’s Olympia, pieces in the 1+11 range are a bit of both.
 
Limited edition conceptual art pieces with ‘possible practical furniture applications’, the pieces are designed in Berlin by Wim Yanov and Milena Bellich of design studio Rednord. Each piece has a single prototype, then a production run of 11 pieces – hence 1+11.
 
Combining art and furniture into one object, the pieces, which won the innovation award at Maison & Objet 2017 in Paris, are influenced by constructivist art, industrial design and graphics. Given enigmatic names such as X, Chi and Epsilon, the pieces seem to suggest a function, but like the Labyrinth design seen here, perhaps it isn’t the one you might first think of.
 
The designers say the ‘Our dream is to achieve a new move in the furniture manufacture by bringing together conceptual art and handcrafting… (the pieces’) multidimensional character will allow the future generations to give our interior objects multiple other lives’.
