Amy Dolan is the creator and maker of Ziggy Sawdust. This Edinburgh based furniture re-design business provides one-of-a-kind, lovingly up cycled pieces of retro and vintage furniture. Have a look at the interview with Amy and photos of her workshop over on Future Positive.
Tokyo-based design firm YOY transforms this fantasy into a reality. Canvas, a series of three navy ink paintings of French-style chairs, makes an illusion out of its subject. The elastic fabric of the canvas hides an actual chair waiting behind the painting, inviting onlookers to take a seat and become the spatial extension of the two-dimensional print. The simplistic elegance of the work seems to embody how easy it is to add a little flourish and whimsy into the throes of the everyday.
