The Sibling Bond furniture

Feb 21 2013, 8:30 am 0 Marco Russo

A small collection of furniture pieces created from the exploration of human qualities and relationships between members of a family, focusing on the relationship on equal level, between brothers. A creative process that through targeted readings, conversations, and behavioral observations drawn from everyday life, saw the Norwegian designer (although she doesn’t like to be defined as such) Ida Kristiansen, use symbolism as the main tool to create and give life to her “family” of products. Three wooden furniture to suit different environments and uses, characterized and linked by geometric shapes, rigid lines and simple design. Three brothers: Snorre, Kaia and Emil, united by the same function but each with its own personality, more or less developed according to the order of birth. Snorre, the first born, a conservative leader with a strong and stable character, which is seen by his younger brothers as the reference point, the example to follow. An open and slender pyramidal structure, equipped with two storage surfaces and a compartment with a door at the top. The second, Kaia, is the woman of the house, the person in charge of peace and harmony in the family, has little self-esteem and try to make an effort to recruit and carve out a role within the family. A bookcase structure with drawers that reverses the shapes to fit in support of the brothers. And finally, a small table, the last born, Emil, naive and honest, that follows and imitates his brothers in every occasion.
