On the dialogue between designer and matter
Welcoming Fragment is a chair growing out of control, aiming to express the nature of a design, establishing an alternative dialogue between the designer and the material.
In the artefact the material breaks away from the designer’s grip hence the piece of furniture emphasizes the rejection a design process conceived by and for humans.
Matter always and inevitably wins out over materiality, Welcoming Fragment reminds us that, far from being the inanimate stuff typically envisioned by modern thought, materials in their original sense are the active constituents of a world-in-formation.
