The Stockholm based designer and sculptor Kasja Melchior creates her work from a design critical approach, where she investigates the borderlands between furniture and sculpture, facts, and fiction. With her collection Fictive Erosion, she sculpted furniture and lighting pieces that take geologically inspired forms, uniquely created thought an experimental method using sand, pressure, air, and water.
The independent designer explains how the concept is rooted in envisaging an idealistic future where machine manufacturing is prohibited for the sake of preserving the earth’s resources. Melchoir explains that the concept for the collection derives from a scenario where human machines are banned due to environmental issues. The collection is an ongoing investigation of how to adapt the formation process in nature into design methods, for which geology was a great source of inspiration.
