Unusual collection of wooden furniture, which is different minimalist design and a modest exterior, designed the designer Catherine Louise Aitkin, Master of the Royal College of Art in Great Britain. Furniture, or rather, several new benches and stools, has been named “Bundle”, because the upper part of each item from this collection, you can easily remove, twist into a bun, and carry it with you.
Bundle or package – whatever definition we choose, the association still brings us back to firewood and brushwood, alluding to the “forest” the origin of the author’s ideas. However, it is not far from the truth, as Catherine Louise Atkin is a textile designer, and very interested exploring a variety of materials, their properties and capabilities, as well as options for potential interactions between them.
Thus, in a series of designer Bundle made “friends” with each other a hardwood maple, soft linens and fluffy warm wool of Australian Merino sheep. The result is a flexible sheet of hard maple boards, which can be folded into the “beam” as an ordinary mat. The idea is that such projects usually provides an opportunity to transform one object into another, from the bench to get a chair and a chair to a stool.
Curiously, Catherine Louise Atkin chose not to decorate furniture created, limiting low-key color fabrics are drawing the edge of the seats. And really, who needs these decorations, as in fashion concise and intuitive design, focused primarily on the functionality and practical use of interior? So benches, chairs and stools in a series of Bundle have a chance for a long time not to lose relevance, as well as an organic look to the interior as an office and residential premises.
