Modern Animist "Creature Confort" Armchair, Merle Flügge & Job Mouwen

About

Modern animist "Creature Confort" armchair - Merle Flügge & Job Mouwen Dimensions: 136 x 88 x 72cm Materials: Wood, foam, fabric by Kvadrat/ Febrik Animist design duo Supertoys Supertoys plays with the idea of (dis)comfort and friendliness. They imagined that this armchair never really grew up. It kept its juvenile, child-like features while being a fully grown adult creature. The result is an armchair with a hard wooden lacquered and highly polished seat with a soft round arm and backrest. Due to its soft colors and hard versus soft materials, the armchair radiates friendliness while negotiating between comfort and discomfort. Creature Comfort Armchair was shown at Fluid Forces by Elle Decoration at Dutch Design Week curated by interior designer and stylist Monique van der Reijden in collaboration with Evelien Reich, editor-in-chief Elle Decoration NL. Supertoys Supertoys debuts with a design collection for an animist world “What if a table wants to be a flower?”. Asking a question like this enables design duo Merle Flügge and Job Mouwen to break our current state of “being human through things” through rather “being human among things”. In their debut collection design duo Merle Flügge and Job Mouwen of Supertoys Supertoys blur the border between object as tool and object as artefact. It is in this blurred and eroded state where the most concrete and the most abstract come together, where there is no distinction between content and expression. The designers consider themselves modern animists and see all things, objects, animals, people, planets as connected to one large network, where there is nothing that is necessarily more important or less important than anything else, where objects have a spirit of their own. The collection was on display at VEEM at Dutch Design Week in collaboration with Studio Pim Top, and at Fluid Forces by Elle Decoration at Dutch Design Week curated by interior designer and stylist Monique van der Reijden (Trend Compass) in collaboration with Evelien Reich, editor-in-chief.
