The MON Collection
2016–17
The MON collection pushes the boundaries of utility through experimentation with functional objects as sculpture.
← 

The Doric stool and the Sophro chair. Sophro has only two legs, which requires the sitter to actively sit in the chair with perfect posture. If the sitter slouches or displaces their weight the chair will tip. The only way to disrupt its balance and slouch, is to sit in the chair backwards.


← 

The MON coffee table. MON incorporates three different legs to form an asymmetrical design. Drawing inspiration from classical monuments, but going against the idea of homogenous, symmetrical perfection, MON utilizes geometry and sculpture to push the limits of basic utility. A table does not need four of the same legs.

Detail of MON. Two symmetrical holes that live in the center of the table’s surface to allow cords to pass through.
