Design that reflect the wacky world we live in.
Today's uncertainty (from politics to pandemic) is played out in design that prods and pokes at the idea of perfection. In a kind of engineered wabi-sabi (the Japanese aesthetic that finds beauty in imperfection), these pieces appear off-balance and even celebrate asymmetry, whether in the innumerable configurations of the Camaleonda modular sofa system that could be a metaphor for creating one's own equilibriumgloriously haphazard and changeableor the Provide x Lock and Mortice table that's spectacularly askew. Seemingly incongruous forms fit together (like Autonomous's Constantinople table) and quite literally hang in the balance (Flos's Arrangements light). Lines tilt, and never meet in expected ways (see: the Ti table). And that's the point.
