Cross is an upholstered chair and stool, part of my upscale universe.
Few years after making my Pinsofa 1, resembling a pin cushion with colorful pins, I began to work on the design of a furniture collection that follows the same design method; “sketch-modeling”. The individual pieces of this collection are dissimilar in their forms although all made according to the same concept: taking everyday objects to first make small-scale furniture models and then enlarging them to the desired scale to achieve life-size pieces. This approach leads to unusual objects and situations upturning the ordinary context and pieces of furniture becoming individual characters.
The final objects are an upholstered chair and a stool, both of which, following the same creative principle, resulted – after long technical experimentation – from enlarging mockups made from tile spacers to about twenty-fold its size.
