TWISTED is a new eclectic furniture collection, designed by Philip Michael Wolfson and will be presented by LG Hausys at the Nhow Hotel during the Milano design week. The collection creates a choreography of motion and continual transformation, its design exposes Wolfson’s distinctive style which moves toward layering and manipulating HI_MACS ® Natural Acrylic Stone, into fluid shapes and forms where shadow and reflection are an integral part of the work.
The concept of Twisted was born from a certain vision of what true design is: The necessary and vital element of design is to provide stimulation in the pursuit of simple daily activities. Creativity insists that we challenge certain criteria. There is an inherent choreography of movement and continuous transformation.
Twisted is composted of: Eruption, Twisted Bar, Split, Twisted Desk, Why Not (which is specially made for Milan Design Week 2010), Split chair low and Split chair high.
Eruption low table is made as an option to a purely “functional surface”. The object examines the role of light and shadow on surface as well as the dynamics of lines. It Insinuates movement by both the contrasts of volume and the suggestion of a physical perception of lightness: the work explores the boundary of solidity and void.
The Split family uses a compound twist to manipulate a simple remnant of the material as a starting point.
Why, is a common word, designers ask themselves, and so do their clients. The form of the Why/WhyNot piece derives from the letter Q, which in itself is a symbol and could be referred to as the challenging letter in the alphabet. It represents a letter as a well as the actual spiral shape which passes on to infinity. Why/WhyNot investigates rhythms and lines of movement along with ideas of the concrete poetry manifestoes of “seeing the word in itself”. Questioning becomes a part of this piece.
One of the Line Series designs, Twisted desk, exploits the “space between and around the lines” which can also be seen as perceived volumes. This becomes as important as the lines themselves in defining or insinuating movement.
