To is an abstract interpretation of a chair, inspired by the exhibition title JOIN. Using pigmented aerated concrete, HR foam and 100% cotton, the designers explore how contrasting elements can merge to form a new conceptual hole that blurs the boundaries between art, crafts and design. Building on the circle shape, the materials’ various characteristics are utilised and emphasised. Also on display are textiles decorated by hand using monotype, made using surplus fabric and colours from he designers’ previous productions.
