Description

The shelves can accomodate small objects or live as furnishing accessories themselves. Mycelium is a family composed of five marble shelves to be placed along the edge of two adjacent walls. Each shelf is a unique piece hand crafted in Italy, with different shapes and dimensions, created in white Carrara marble. The set can be installed as you like and, it can also coexist with the Asteroid series. The shelves can accomodate small objects or live as furnishing accessories themselves. The bevelled edges enable two choice possibilities of the support surface. The work is inspired by the nature entropic force, trying to question the relation between the design object and the final user who is invited to become the “editor” of the display itself. Mushrooms and space minerals of precious marble climb up the walls randomly, giving unlimited composition possibilities. The marble has a new contemporary meaning. Julio Verne’s world at the “Centre of the Earth” is the inspirational background of these shelves family that try to focus again imagination and fantasy at the centre of the design practice.

Curated by

Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making. The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
