Railing is a new collection of furniture pieces designed by ArandaLasch. At Design Miami 2015, Gallery ALL will present the first three elements of the collection R1, R2 & R3: two chairs and a stool.
Railing is an exploration of structural modular loops that are upholstered like handle-grips to become furniture. Each piece of furniture is a single loop made up of many circles. Here, the circle does not display the qualities it is most known for, but it is what a circle can be. It is not whole or complete but is instead growing into itself. It is a circle that refuses its own dimension and finitude, that struggles to be endless.
The Railing collection continues ArandaLasch’s research into modularity through a novel language of arcs. Though the pieces in the collection vary in size, shape, function and complexity, each one carries the same logic of a single line that curves through a lattice of fractal circles and comes back to itself to form a continuous loop. This system allows all distinct pieces to be created from the same set of modular stainless steel pipe arcs. The upholstery wraps the metal in a selection of colors and materials, extending the material language of handle-bar grips into a loopy dimension. The three pieces at Design Miami are presented in both silicone foam and hand-sewn leather upholstery.
