I have always loved this piece in MoMAs permanent collection, by Demakersvan (first 3 images below). It is an incredible example of what technology today can do for the art of furniture making and the like. A statement from the “about us” section on Demakersvan’s website, explains the style and intention of this piece in a clear and interesting way:
“We are plain but love the impossible.
We respect the old but want the new.
We want to challenge, confront the normal, the accepted, the expected.”
Continuing below: Designers like Marc Newson, Francois Chambard of UM Project have created pieces with this same continuity. The pieces appear almost “un-designed”, which is what makes them so successful.
