The challenge with the Nest range for +Halle was the balance between the seat and legs. The importance was adding steadiness, to an exceptionally elegant, high piece of furniture.
There was a deal of prototype ping pong to begin with. CAD files to and from +Halle as the concept developed. And the nature of the ‘high furniture’ was something that placed a lot of stress on the different components. If you have a longer structure that you want to keep ‘clean’ aesthetically then the stresses on joints and spot welds increase.
Together with +Halle, we invested a lot of time in developing the right steel structure that would hold its lines but not take over visually. A narrow gauge pipe loses its torsional strength. The fluid intersection of the seat and the backrest in the Nest collection is about quality and durability, demonstrating the skills on offer in +Halle’s factory. A simple, rational metal construction with bend tubes is the optimal way to create a simple but durable leg construction but keep some spring. A ladder to the clouds above.
Building a box should be easy. Four sides, a top perhaps. Corners. However, as a studio, we do tend to sweat the small stuff. As a result, it took many CAD drawings to find the quality we were looking for when designing Greenhouse 2016 and its simple box-like stands for the exhibitors.Read more
Punāh is an initiative by one of India’s major manufacturing conglomerates,
Godrej and Boyce, focusing on re-thinking the use of industrial waste materials. This year, Form Us With Love was invited to Mumbai as curators, designing the first ever Punāh exhibition, shown at the London Design Festival Sept 2016.
Gottsunda is a civic concept created for a municipality of Uppsala, just to the north of Stockholm; and was part of Santa & Cole’s range.
At a glance the piece seems harsh and unfriendlRe: FUWL books 160113, mail 1 of 2.y, yet there’s a visual warmth and realism to using moulded concrete. It’s a material we’ve all seen so it gives off a familiarity and durability of course, which a piece for public areas requires.
The advantage of curating a sequence of exhibitions is that you can learn from one exhibition and apply it to the next. Last year, Form Us With Love utilised their Greenhouse design at Stockholm Furniture & Light fair as a platform for dialogue. This resulted in an unpleasant discovery, unveiling that the perceived gap between […]Read more
In Fall 2016, Form Us With Love in collaboration with TID watches has brought an anticipated newcomer into the TID watch range, TID No1 Gold. This matt gold coloured watch, keeps the simplistic industrial look, but adds a pleasant component to the family, a somewhat affectionate take on No.1 steel. Crafted in the same elegant manner, No1 […]Read more
