Take a seat on colorful chairs

Fun, colorful, and unique chairs and other furniture pieces inspired by various themes were recently displayed at a mall to give mall-goers a glimpse of a kind of borderless design they can bring home. 

FUNCTIONAL AND DECORATIVE. Crab chair by Andrea de Castro, one of the fun and colorful chairs displayed at Chroma: Color Your Furniture exhibition at S Maison.
The hand-painted Pintados chair by Michelle Raven Landicho is inspired by the remnants of paint on a palette.
The Chroma: Color Your Furniture exhibition, a joint project of Benilde’s Interior Design program and S Maison, focused on the depths of design and construction of furniture through traditional and digital hybrid approach.

A partial fulfillment of the Interior Design Program’s Furniture Design and Construction 1 class, the subject focuses on designing “free-standing” furniture and following step-by-step construction techniques. This aims to help and hone the students to design a core collection of different types of furniture pieces while exploring various forms and materials for their very own prototypes.

The students drew inspiration from various themes: from nature like coral reefs and twilight sky to historical concepts like the 20th century Rotary Dial and Piet Mondrian’s “The Composition.” Some were also inspired by iconic furniture designs like Ito Kish’s Baluster collection, the Queen Anne lowboy, and the Mariposa and Batibot chairs.
