Trlllusion - Salone Internazionale del Mobile
SaloneSatellite Milano 2012
Trillusion explores possible relations between furniture and space.
Does furniture define space or is it the extension of space?
How can furniture adapt to space and vice versa?
The three basic furniture elements seating bench, bar table, desk and backwall are arranged in a 6m by 4m space and complemented with graphics on the floor and walls.
The graphics are continuations of the furniture´s built lines and transform the surrounding two dimensional planes into an optical illusion of spatial depth. The effect is the irritation of spatial perception and the extension of the real existing space. The synthesis between furniture and graphics blurs the boundaries between reality and illusion.
Surface becomes space, space becomes surface.
The play of visual irritation and the various accordances between reality and illusion invites the visitors for an active contention with the exhibition space. To explore and verify the actual boundaries inbetween the two dimensions and at the same time imagining
other configurations of the space-furniture relation.
