"Nobody puts Baby in a corner"

An environment designed for us instead of a design we must fit into.

My study challenges the status quo that seems to exist in the design of modern apartments, which is heavily influenced by the modernistic movement that flourished in early 20th century. Modernists strived to create a just and equal society, by challenging the social order and the traditional hierarchical system.

The architecture of the time tried to reflect these ideals and ultimately resulted in simplistic and repetitive designs that often formed box like interiors with standardised furniture. Consequently, these designs are detached from the individualism of the inhabitants, forcing people to sit, sleep, dine, socialise in a predefined space in a prescribed manner.

My project is an artistic intervention to the BOX - the soulless interior of modern apartments. My aim is to create, with furniture/objects, a symbiotic relationship between the interior and the human body, to explore alternative ways of existing within the box.

A critical response to apartments and furniture designed according to modernistic ideals.
