Furniture for the self-proclaimed royals.
”On this stool, the Countess of Sorgenfri used to sit and write her famous sonnets and thirst traps. Like the young nobilities of her time, she was schooled in the art of texting. Rumour has it that her ghost still hides in between the fibers, awaiting the perfect moment to resurface and reply.”
The “Really Rococo” desk and stool are loosely based on the asymmetrical and nature-inspired rococo style. A workplace for emotional labor and social maintenance. Inspired by the ”Bonheur-Du-Jour”, a type of letter-writing desk that was popular among women in the 1700s. The objects are made out of “Really Board”, a textile waste fibreboard with a core of discarded hotel bedlinen and a coating of shredded textile off-cuts.
Originally commissioned by M.U.S. (Malmö Upcycling Service) for the collective exhibition “Last Minute” at the Swedish Embassy in Denmark during 3daysofdesign.
