Collaborative art project / Furniture design
Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Sweden 2012

Untitled, (Vernacular Furniture) was an art project initiated by artist Rivane Neuenschwander, dealing with notions of place, globalization, contemporary society and heritage. In a process of translation, collaborators were asked by the artist to interpret the initial frame of the project.
Invited by Neuenschwander and the learning dep. at Moderna Museet, a possible translation within a local context was developed in collaboration with artist Laercio Redondo.
Given the lack of vernacular furniture present in Swedish society nowadays, the concept developed for this specific project was to reinterpret the historical vernacular examples found at Skansen outdoor museum in Stockholm.
The following creative process took form together with design students from Nyckelviksskolan and resulted in a selection of understated stools, chairs and tables, all made of colored MDF-board, pine & plywood.
