A dynamic duo comprised of two swedish-based designers, Erik Olovsson and Kyuhyung Cho, came up with the idea of rethinking how objects breathe in space by conjuring an old boyhood game of building with blocks. The playfulness of the design comes forward with every element we encounter and with each idea of how to sort them out. The 25 stackable blocks, made of plywood finished with matt lacquer, come in different shapes and sizes and have been inspired by the objects they house. Each block can house pretty much anything, from books, to bottles of wine, shoes, scarves, sunglasses, suitcases or mugs. Both, composition and choices are unlimited.
Inciting creativity and challenging the mind, blocks can form from horizontal shelves to vertical cabinets. All you have to do is pick your favourite elements and built up your own composition. “Erik and Kyuhyung were interested in diversifying the relationship between object and space to create furniture as rooms for objects. The focus was to explore the mix-and-match quality of the ensemble in our spaces from a graphical approach. ROOM enhances the characteristic of the individual objects and emphasises the interactions between space and object.”
