Defocus
(2023)

Defocus is an artisanal furniture collection that embraces flat packing as the way today’s society conceives of furniture. In this project, the user finishes the artisan’s work by assembling the furniture with joints that resemble ancient carpentry clamps. These joints become conversational pieces about the artisan’s processes and aim to stimulate further interest in the craft. Ideal for nomads, Defocus is easy to assemble and disassemble without any additional tools. Moreover, the thoughtful design of the production process reconciles crafts with efficient manufacturing. The result is the creation of long-lasting and unique pieces that balance time and material resources.
