Sometimes design errs on the side of art, and sometimes it trends toward engineering – this is definitely in the latter category.

Per The Turner Collective:¬†“Series 1A is a collection of minimalist objects, balancing objectivity, schematic clarity and inner logic, leading to a natural functionalism and geometric simplicity. Removing all representational imagery or similarity of subject, the objects are reduced to mathematics; rational, simple and clear, uncomplicated by personal, moral or philosophical boundaries.”

Still, they are not without their humanity – the proportions of the people who will use them are critical, and upon the base designs could easily be built a series of more comfortable additions for further softening them.
