Art & Function in Furniture Design

Filmed by JEJ for FACADES

Work by Danish furniture designer Rasmus Baekkel Fex

Wood and Webbing produced at the Danish Art Workshops.

What happens when you create a design that has no function whatsoever- is it then art?

It certainly dwells on the borderland between the two. 

When you let go of function and mass production as starting points for the creative process, new ways of thinking about design emerge.

Decadent Dogu by Ceramist- Michael Geertsen

Filmed by JEJ for FACADES

The Works represent a revitalization of the ceramic figure, note the familiar rococo porcelain figure but rather the Japanese 'dogu', which has a history going back more than 10,000 years.

These are deconstructions of recognizable fragments, but they have been incorporated into an abstract form as echoes of a jar, a vase or a pot. Jars with complications, which lets the works escape the clear statement and functional purpose, and which pursues uncertainty rather than an easily decoded unambiguous element.

Splendour Lender: The Musical Cupboard

Filmed by JEJ for FACADES

Designer/creator Jelle Mastenbroek wanted to explore status and how to improve the quality of life without spending money. He was reminded of the Dutch tradition of using special cabinets to display pricey porcelain as a sign of wealth.

In his vision, a coin tinkling against cups and plates creates musical notes. The coin is retrieved afterwards, making this musical experience completely free.

Textile Design on Wood

Filmed by JEJ for FACADES

"Marbelous Wood" -Refraction by Textile designer Pernille Snedker Hansen

Produced at the Danish Art Workshops

The floor is the largest wooden surface in Scandinavian homes. 

Marbelous Wood reinterprets this classic domestic feature with vibrating colours across its surface.

In Refraction both the form and the applied pattern are inspired by the refraction of light through a prism, a graduating colour scale from one colour to the next. Its very organic yet graphic patterning creates an optical experience as your feet move across the floor. The transparent marbling pattern merges with the wood, entering into a dialogue with the inherent ornamentation of wood.
