Mind-bending

Furniture Sculptures by Michael Beitz

There is much sculpturally shaped furniture around but sculptures as furniture are somewhat harder to find.  Michael Beitz is an artist who takes inspiration from ordinary furniture items such as tables and benches and creates mind-bending sculptures which intrigues and amuses in equal measures.  We especially like the bench on a roll, which was featured in Banksy's Dismaland installation in 2015, as well as the dining table which goes round in a loop, just perfect for dysfunctional couples.

Sculptural Style

Product Inspiration

Sculptural furniture is great for making a bold design statement.  We love the geometric elegance of the Clay dining table from Desalto as well as the bright, pop shapes of the Toadstool sofa from Missana.

 

For sculpturally shaped lights try the Lampscapes suspension light from Frederik Roije or, for a softer look, the Mini Mikado suspension light from LZF. 

 

The sculptural style is all about striking shapes such as the Hara candle from Andrej Urem and the Heirloom vase from Moustache.
