Taurus Chair is a part of sculpture furniture collection Wild Minimalism . Main inspiration for this collection comes from the desire to go “back to the roots”. In this case the phrase can be interpreted in multiple ways and levels. On the existential level, we go back to the state of belonging, to the place of beginning and identity. In such a manic and fake world, the feeling of being grounded and “one with the nature” – is the most precious one, which ROOMS want to bring back to the interiors, by using the most basic and natural building materials – stone, wood, brass and glass.
On a cultural level designers return and base this collection on the ancient wood curving techniques of ancestors, everything is done, as it used to be centuries ago. All wooden elements are hand crafted in a very simplistic and primitive way. Of course, rather than being just mere copies of the ancient products, they add a modern twist and hint of humor to them – a stairway that leads nowhere, unrefined stone drawer attached to the wooden console etc.
The final look of the collection is defined by the fusion of different materials and the way different shapes are mixed to create a single object.
The theme of “primitivity” continues through, in the shapes that ROOMS use as well. They want the products to feel unaffected or little affected by civilizing influences. In terms of shapes they look more sculptural and would be considered to be art pieces.
Wild Minimalism is a limited edition collection – with very few re-runs and because of its hand curved technique – each product will be one of a kind. Very symbolic shapes make this pieces iconic.
