llot llov @ Interieur Biennale
The tables where llot llov´s contribution to a competition of the Interieur 2010 Design Biennale. The call was to design a new furniture. Thus we asked ourselves, what is currently engaging our world, what makes us happy, interests us. While we were brainstorming we thought of an exhibition in Berlin that has been much discussed. The Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson exhibition at the Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin. He focuses on the process of perception. His work disorientates with the help of small interventions.
If you look at the ELIAS and SON tables from afar, the mirrors that are attached within the inner frames are making it seem as if you could see through the rods. The facing struts are mirrored so that the viewer thinks of it as the one further away and accepts the illusion unnoticed. Only when one nears the table, ones perception is irritated. The viewer is mirrored and creates through his movement the resolution of the illusion. This is the moment we wanted to design - a moment of surprise, of realisation, of understanding and childlike happiness to have discovered the attempted deceit. The bottom part and the table top are simply interlocking. The frame is made of beech wood and can easily be folded. The mirror recesses into the inner frame. The coloured glass plates create a play of colours on the floor.
