Array ARRAY is an exploration on creating diversity in the living room setting, Tijs Gilde sets out to break the conventions surrounding the composition of todays living room. Instead of having the usual tv-carpet-couch setting he suggests a more flexible alternative. Soft shapes made from foam are upholstered with high quality felt fabrics giving a sense of luxury to the simpel form language. Each block is provided with a yellow strap that pierces the objects, allowing the user to strap different blocks together into new compositions while inspiring experimentation for new functionalities. Together the shapes create a colorful and young image which is characterising for Tijs’s work.
U CANDLE U CANDLE is a simple product with a double function. My work always contains a form of flexibility or offers a sence of choice in a smiple and evident way.
