“The Shadows” is a series of wooden chairs and benches that have been transformed into fabled, mythical animals. Phuc Van Dang’s distinctive black line street art is repeated in the chair design, which invites function, allegory, and reflection. The furniture concept adds a new dimension to street art and the interior design of the public space.
Mythical animals grow out of Van Dang’s sharp line; creatures that in silhouettes give glimpses of reflections on the real and unreal, where humans and nature meet and merge into characters of emotion. The furniture design transforms the artwork as light falls on it and creates a shadow dimension that is in perpetual motion. Light and shadow create life and dynamism, and, thus, the furniture is not just a chair, but a living character with a narrative and a sensuality that changes the experience of sitting.
“The Mermaid” and “The Kentaur” make up part of a furniture concept for both outdoor and indoor use. A unique and elegant furniture concept, which, at the same time, has lots of soul and history. Possible locations include: urban spaces, parks, private, businesses, municipalities, etc. All in all, the places where one needs to appreciate art, design, crafts, and sustainable materials.
