We have previously covered the sculptural and minimalist works of Luur, the interdisciplinary studio of American designer Christopher Stuart. He recently showcased a new collection of furniture at The Future Perfect during the design week in New York which is no less intriguing.
The "Constructs" part of the collection de- and reconstructs familiar furniture objects to highlight the beauty of distortions. The Zig Zag bench, for example, transforms the humble bench into a delicate object which challenges preconceptions of strength and balance.
The starting point of the "Glitches" collection is more conceptual. The designs are based on glitches in CAD (computer aided design) drawings, the unintentional imperfections immortalised in polished steel structures which are part sculpture and part functional furniture.
We love the flexible resin rings and bowls from Corsi,which shows how apparently imperfect and messy forms can be transformed into something sculptural and beautiful.

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?

American artist-designer John Eric Byers cites, amongst others, Donald Judd and Richard Serra as sources of his inspiration. The influence of these American masters of minimalism are clear to see from the furniture he has created.

Detractors of minimalism often decry the cold, impersonal nature of the style. However, when executed intelligently, minimalist designs can be surprisingly expressive. The furniture collections of designer Niko Koronis is a case in point.
